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: Etymological Dictionary of the Slavic Inherited Lexicon
Written By: Rick Derksen
Series Title: Leiden Indo-European Etymological Dictionary Series, 4

This latest dictionary in the Leiden Indo-European Etymological Dictionary
Series systematically and exhaustively deals with the Slavic inherited
lexicon. It is unique in combining recent insights from the field of
comparative Indo-European linguistics with modern Balto-Slavic accentology.
In addition, the author makes an explicit attempt at reconstructing part of
the Balto-Slavic lexicon.

The lemmata of the dictionary are alphabetically arranged Proto-Slavic
etyma. Each lemma consists of a number of fields which contain the
evidence, reconstructions and notes. The introduction explains the contents
and the significance of the individual fields. Here the reader can also
find information on the various sources of the material. The volume
concludes with an extensive bibilography of sources and secondary
literature, and a word index.

Indo-Europeanists as well as anyone interested in Slavic historical
linguistics or etymological studies in general.
