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.

Title: Understanding Child Language Acquisition
Written By: David M. Singleton
Lisa Ryan

How children acquire their first language is of great interest to linguists
because it may give insight into the nature of language. "Understanding
Child Language Acquisition" offers an accessible introduction to first
language acquisition for undergraduates and takes a cross-linguistic,
typological slant that is particularly relevant and desirable in language
acquisition studies.
