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: Investigating Arabic
Subtitle: Current Parameters in Analysis and Learning
Edited By: Alaa Elgibali
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Language & Linguistics

This book offers a wide range overview of current research issues in Arabic
linguistics, extending from the general to the specific. It includes in
depth investigations of theoretical and applied topics that are of interest
to general and Arabic linguistics: computational analysis of Arabic, Arabic
dialectology, acquisition of Arabic as a native language, learning and
teaching Arabic as a first or foreign language, sociolinguistic analysis of
Arabic, and the status of Arabic in European academe. Despite the seeming
diversity of the topics, they fall thematically into two major
inter-related categories, analysis and learning. Each chapter is a
thoughtful reflection of a major current trend in the study of Arabic.
