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: Developing Contrastive Pragmatics
Subtitle: Interlanguage and Cross-Cultural Perspectives
Edited By: Martin Pütz
JoAnne Neff-van Aertselaer
Series Title: Studies on Language Acquisition [SOLA] 31

The present volume is a collection of papers on Contrastive Pragmatics,
involving research on interlanguage and cross-cultural perspectives with a
focus on second language acquisition contexts. The subdiscipline of
pragmatics is seen from a multilingual and multicultural perspective thus
contributing to an emerging field of study, i.e. intercultural pragmatics
which can be made fruitful to second language teaching/learning and
contrastive analysis. The book is an important contribution to general
linguistics, pragmatics, cross-cultural communication, second language
acquisition, as well as minority issues in multilingual settings.
