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: Analysing English Sentences
Subtitle: A Minimalist Approach
Written By: Andrew Radford

Analysing English Sentences provides a concise and clear introduction to
current work in syntactic theory, drawing on the key concepts of Chomsky’s
Minimalist Program. Assuming little or no prior knowledge of syntax or
minimalism, Radford outlines the core concepts and leading ideas and how
they can be used to describe various aspects of the syntax of English. A
diverse range of topics is covered, including syntactic structure, null
constituents, head movement, case and agreement and split projections.
Using Radford's trademark approach and writing style, the book is intensive
and progressive in nature, introducing grammatical concepts and
working in stages towards more complex phenomena.
