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: Current Issues in Generative Hebrew Linguistics
Edited By: Sharon Armon-Lotem
Gabi Danon
Susan Rothstein
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 134

This volume presents a collection of specially commissioned papers devoted
to analyzing the linguistics of Modern Hebrew from a number of
perspectives. Various aspects of Modern Hebrew grammar are discussed
including the structure of the lexicon, grammatical features and
inflectional morphology, as well as the grammaticalization of semantic and
pragmatic distinctions. The psycholinguistic issues addressed include the
acquisition of morphological knowledge, the pro-drop parameter and question
formation, as well as language use in hearing-impaired native speakers. The
collection of these papers together in a single volume allows these
phenomena to be considered not in isolation but in the context of the
grammatical system of which the language is an expression. As a
consequence, more general issues connected to Modern Hebrew begin to
emerge, such as the role of the inflectional morphological system in the
grammar, and a rich set of facts and analyses relevant for many related
issues are made available to the reader.
