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: Textcorpus und Wörterbuch
Subtitle: Aspekte zur ägyptischen Lexikographie
Edited By: S. Grunert
I. Hafemann
Series Title: Probleme der Ägyptologie

The confrontation of the magisterial Wörterbuch der Ägyptischen Sprache (12
volumes, publ. 1926-1963) and the enormous possibilities for lexicography
offered by modern techniques forms the subject of this new volume in
Brill's monograph series Probleme der Ägyptologie.

It consists of papers offering of course an appreciation of the Wörterbuch,
but also thorough contributions highlighting specific lexicographical and
linguistic problems, and the new approaches and concepts in these fields.
New directions for (Egyptian) lexicography are appearing, profiting from,
and combining the solid lexicographical methodologies of the past, and
computer-aided innovations of today.
