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: Hattischer Wortschatz in hethitischer Textüberlieferung
Written By: O. Soysal
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East

The particular aim of this volume is an extensive compilation of Hattian
words based on Hittite written sources. It sets itself the task of listing
all Hattian lexical elements alphabetically as they occur as words or in
word combinations, with text references, and relevant bibliography. The
main part of the book, the "List of Hattian Words," contains morphological
analyses of the Hattian lexemes, their Hittite equivalents in the bilingual
documents as well as the lexical elements Hittite borrowed from Hattian.
Apart from the word list this study offers information on the Hattian text
corpus, Hattian phonetics, grammar and semantics.
