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: Language Development Over the Lifespan
Written By: Kees de Bot
Robert W. Schrauf

Language Development Over the Lifespan is intended as a reference resource
for those conducting research on language development and the aging
process, and as a supplementary textbook for MA courses in applied
linguistics/bilingualism programs (in schools of Education and Liberal
Arts) that focus on language attrition/aging and adult literacy development
in second languages. It offers an integrative approach to language
development that examines changes in language over a lifetime, organized by
different theoretical perspectives, which are presented by well-known
international scholars.
