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."

New from Cambridge University Press!


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: Collected Works of M A K Halliday Set
Written By: Michael A. K. Halliday
Edited By: Jonathan J. Webster

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

"An initiative greatly to be welcomed."
- IH Journal, 2008.

For nearly half a century Michael Halliday has been enriching the
discipline of linguistics with his keen insight into the social semiotic
phenomenon we call language. Now, for the first time, Halliday's collected
works are available as a ten-volume set.

As a self-styled 'generalist' Michael Halliday has published in many
branches of linguistics, both theoretical and applied, including grammar
and semantics, discourse analysis and stylistics, phonology,
sociolinguistics, computational linguistics, language education and child
language development. This ten-volume set encompasses all of these aspects
of Halliday's work.
