It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

New from Cambridge University Press!


Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Move! A Minimalist Theory of Construal
Written By: Norbert Hornstein

Move! A Minimalist Theory of Construal provides an accessible, in-depth,
and empirically oriented look at Chomsky's Minimalist Program.

This volume facilitates understanding of the concepts of the Minimalist
Program framework and presents a theory which eliminates construal
processes from Universal Grammar. In its place, this book generalizes
movement to promote a rather homogeneous-looking Universal Grammar, bereft
of many of the modules characteristic of GB-inspired proposals for the
structure of Universal Grammar.

Move! articulates a far greater empirical range than any other single work
in the Minimalist Program. It successfully explains the concepts of the
framework, unifies many phenomena in new ways, and enables readers to
understand several long-standing puzzles.
