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: Aspects of the Syntax of Agreement
Written By: Cedric Boeckx
Series Title: Routledge Leading Linguists

This volume brings together various strands of research focusing on aspects
of the syntax of agreement, and the role that agreement plays in linguistic
theory. The essays collected here show how and why agreement has emerged in
recent years as the central theoretical construct in minimalism. Although
the theoretical context of the volume is minimalist in character, Boeckx
formulates formal and substantive universals in the domain of agreement.
