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: The English Language Teacher in Global Civil Society
Written By: Barbara M. Birch
Series Title: ESL and Applied Linguistic Professionals Series

Many English language teachers are interested in promoting reconciliation
and sustainable peace, locally and globally, but often do not know how to
do so. This book provides information, analysis, and techniques to help
teachers around the world take action toward this goal. Balancing, in a
readable and accessible way, the global and the local, core and periphery,
cultural diffusion and resistance, theory and practice, pessimism and
optimism, outsider and insider perspectives, the expert role and the
apprentice role, and prescriptive and elicitive methods, it offers an
alternative to literature about critical applied linguistics,
globalization, and peace education that is simply too complex and wordy to
spread easily from theoretician to the classroom teacher.
