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: Linguistic Landscape
Subtitle: Expanding the Scenery
Edited By: Elana Shohamy
Durk Gorter

In this comprehensive and pioneering volume, language scholars from around
the world examine the "linguistic landscape" from multiple perspectives –
theoretical, methodological, and critical. Written by widely recognized
experts, the articles in Linguistic Landscape analyze linguistic landscapes
in a range of international contexts. Dozens of photographs illustrate the
use of language in the environment – the words and images displayed and
exposed in public spaces. Suitable for graduate or advanced undergraduate
students in applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, and language policy
studies, Linguistic Landscape is a vital contribution to a burgeoning field.
