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: Zum Germanischen aus laryngaltheoretischer Sicht (Germanic Languages from the Perspective of Laryngeal Theory. With an Introduction to the Foundations of Laryngeal Theory)
Subtitle: Mit einer Einführung in die Grundlagen der Laryngaltheorie
Written By: Stefan Müller
Series Title: Studia Linguistica Germanica 88

The book is concerned with a particular set of Indo-European sounds, the
laryngeals, and the effect they had on the sounds, forms and etymologies of
the Germanic languages. It contains detailed introductions to all the
fundamentals of laryngeal theory, together with an introduction to the
problematic history of the laryngeal theory which can be read without
specialist knowledge. Research into the Germanic languages has not
previously taken account of laryngeal theory, but with it many a sound law,
etymology and morphological development can be reformulated or made more
