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."

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: Intercultural Language Use and Language Learning
Edited By: Maria Pilar Safont Jordà

*Includes well known names in applied linguistics
*Contains original empirical studies dealing with ELF and bilingual learners
*Up-to-date discussion of intercultural theory and research
*Links intercultural research to language learning and teaching

This volume addresses an issue that deserves further attention: that of
intercultural learners in instructed language contexts. The book focuses on
English learners as intercultural speakers. In so doing, the volume brings
together three main research areas: those of the study of English as a
lingua franca, the development of communicative competence and the use and
acquisition of a language beyond a second one in instructed contexts.
