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: A Handbook of Germanic Etymology
Written By: Vladimir E Orel

This book represents a reconstruction of the Proto-Germanic vocabulary as
attested in ancient and modern Germanic languages and projected to the
Proto-Germanic level. The volume contains valuable linguistic information
giving an outline of Proto-Germanic language, culture and pre-historic
tradition. It is the first attempt to reconstruct the Proto-Germanic
lexicon after the work of Falk and Torp in the beginning of the XXth century.
