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: Lessons from Good Language Learners
Edited By: Carol Griffiths

Inspired by a ground-breaking article by Joan Rubin in 1975 in which she
set out to identify the strategies used by successful language learners,
this edited collection re-examines the same topic in the light of current
thinking and research, considers the implications for language teaching and
learning, and looks at some of the questions which are still unresolved.
