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: Rules, Constraints, and Phonological Phenomena
Edited By: Bert Vaux
Andrew Nevins

This volume of new work by prominent phonologists goes to the heart of
current debates in phonological and linguistic theory: should the
explanation of phonological variety be constraint or rule-based and, in the
light of the resolution of this question, how in the mind does phonology
interface with other components of the grammar. The book includes
contributions from leading proponents of both sides of the argument and an
extensive introduction setting out the history, nature, and more general
linguistic implications of current phonological theory.
