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: Bilinguality and Literacy, Second Edition
Subtitle: Principles and Practice
Edited By: Manjula Datta

The new edition of 'Bilinguality and Literacy' argues that bilingual
children’s literacy learning in English is necessarily an intercultural
process. Children’s voices are strong in this revised, updated and expanded
edition and looks closely at bilingual children's writing development in
view of the Ofsted statement that 'fluent bilingual pupils struggle with
writing (2003).'

'Bilinguality and Literacy' will be of interest to undergraduate students
of applied linguistics, teacher training courses, and academics researching
multilingualism and literacy.

'The new edition of Bilinguality and Literacy is a valuable resource in the
current climate for practitioners, student teachers, policy makers and
others interested in the achievement of bilingual pupils... It is an
informative and inspiring read.'
-Clare Kelly, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK

'The original version of this book has been particularly popular with
teacher educators and student teachers. In this new revised edition Manjula
Datta looks closely at and exemplifies how bilingual children think and
learn. It is particularly welcome as a valuable resource for teachers at a
time when there is greater recognition in the English education system of
the value of bilingualism in children’s learning.'
-Dr. Raymonde Sneddon, University of East London, UK
