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.

In this new edition of TUFS Studies in Linguistics, we aim to
showcase the various linguistics research conducted at Tokyo University of
Foreign Studies. In this first volume, we report on the international
symposium hosted by the Global Center of Excellence Program "Corpus-based
Linguistics and Language Education (CbLLE)" throughout 2008. Also in this
collection, we consider the timeless linguistics issue of "variation" by
utilizing the corpus analysis method. Whether sociolinguistic, stylistic or
individual, variations manifest in a variety of ways throughout time and
space and are closely related to issues surrounding linguistic theories.
Additionally this volume includes other research upon diverse themes such
as diachronic variation analysis, lexical variations, second language
acquisition and bilingualism.
