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: Altgeorgisch-Deutsches Wörterbuch
Written By: S. Sardshweladse
Heinz Fähnrich
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 8: Uralic & Central Asian Studies

Evidence of old Georgian, the only written language in the South Caucasian
family for many centuries, presents us with a unique source of knowledge
for this region; history, law, religion. This dictionary of old-Georgian by
Professors Fähnrich and Sardshweladse (†) fills a long-felt hiatus and
opens up for the first time the lexicon of its first seven centuries, viz.
the 4th to the 11th centuries A.D. The explanatory language is German. All
old Georgian words and word meanings are accompanied by ample evidence from
the texts themselves, the result of painstaking research over many decades.
A must for specialists in the region, its language and history.
