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: A Greek and Arabic Lexicon, Volume 8 b - bdl
Edited By: G. Endress
D. Gutas
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East 11

From the eighth to the tenth century A.D., Greek scientific and
philosophical works were translated wholesale into Arabic. A Greek and
Arabic Lexicon is the first systematic attempt to present in an analytical,
rationalized way our knowledge of the vocabulary of these translations. It
is an indispensable reference tool for the study and understanding of
Arabic scientific and philosophical language and literature, and for the
knowledge of the vocabulary of Classical and Middle Greek and the reception
and reading of classical Greek works in late antiquity and pre-Photian
Byzantine literature.
