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: Language Attrition
Subtitle: Theoretical perspectives
Edited By: Barbara Köpke
Monika S Schmid
Merel Keijzer
Susan Claire Dostert
Series Title: Studies in Bilingualism 33

This collection of articles provides theoretical foundations and
perspectives for language attrition research. Its purpose is to enable
investigations of L1 attrition to avail themselves more fully and more
fundamentally of the theoretical frameworks that have been formulated with
respect to SLA and bilingualism. In the thirteen papers collected here,
experts in particular disciplines of bilingualism, such as
neurolinguistics, formal linguistics, contact linguistics and language and
identity, provide an in-depth perspective on L1 attrition which will make
the translation of theory to hypothesis easier for future research.
