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.

Title: Syntactic Microvariation
Edited By: Sjef Barbiers
Leonie Cornips
S. van der Kleij

The electronic book Syntactic Microvariation contains papers on various aspects of dialect syntax. Most of the papers were presented at the Workshop Syntactic Microvariation that took place in August
2000 at the Meertens Instituut in Amsterdam. The goal of this workshop was to start cooperation between a number of large scale European dialect syntax projects, including the ASIS-project in Italy, the
SAND-project in the Netherlands and Flanders, the project English
Dialect Syntax from a typological perspective at Freiburg, Germany, and the project Dialect Syntax of Swiss German at Zürich,
Switzerland. This volume contains both papers on the design and methodology of dialect syntactic research projects as well as papers describing and analyzing syntactic microvariation from a typological and generative point of view. All papers are freely available at in pdf-format.
