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: Language Allegiances and Bilingualism in the US
Edited By: Maximo Rafael Salaberry
Series Title: Linguistic Diversity and Language Rights

This book analyses the concept of language allegiances, and, more broadly,
language-based identities in a multilingual society such as the US. The
guiding theme of the chapters that comprise this volume is the
identification of specific beliefs and attitudes towards language, and how
these lead to particular actions in the spheres of language ideology, legal
litigation, educational agendas, political strategies and cultural
identities. The authors share the idea that, whether it is based on reality
or a perception of reality, there is a privileged connection between
language and identity.
