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: Interdependence of Diachronic and Synchronic Analyses
Edited By: Folke Henrik Josephson
Ingmar Söhrman
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 103

The focus of this volume is the interdependence of diachrony and synchrony
in the investigation of syntactic structure. A diverse set of modern and
ancient languages is investigated from this perspective, including Hittite,
the Classical languages, Old Norse, Coptic, Bantu languages, Australian
languages and Creoles. A variety of topics are covered, including TAM,
diathesis, valency, case marking, cliticization, and grammaticalization.
This volume should be of interest to syntacticians, typologists, and
historical linguists with an interest in syntax and morphology.
