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: Structures and Strategies
Written By: Adriana Belletti
Series Title: Routledge Leading Linguists

Following crucial insights on the functional structure of the clause and
recent developments within the cartographic projects and minimalism, this
book addresses various central themes in Italian and Romance syntax ranging
from verb syntax and the syntax of verb-related phenomena of agreement and
cliticization, to word order issues and their status in discourse contexts.
It illustrates a research program where the basic formal components of
grammar, the rich cartographic syntactic structures, are directly
implicated in morphosyntactic computations proper as well as in the
articulation of discourse strategies.
