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: Sprache und sprachliches Handeln (Language and Linguistic Action: Writings on Linguistics)
Subtitle: Band 1: Pragmatik und Sprachtheorie; Band 2: Prozeduren des sprachlichen Handelns; Band 3: Diskurs – Narration – Text – Schrift
Written By: Konrad Ehlich

The three collected volumes of this study of language and linguistic action
present the first compendium of the foundations of a functional-pragmatic
theory of language, and using exemplars of linguistic analysis give an
insight into the approaches and methods which are possible working on the
basis of the theory. Volume 1 takes critical issue with the main lines of
the construction of linguistic theory to develop the profile of a
functional-pragmatic approach, Volume 2 examines the use of linguistic
procedures in language action, and Volume 3 concentrates on the analysis of
discourses in various action fields such as education, business or religion.
