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.

Title: Sinhala-English code-mixing in Sri Lanka
Subtitle: A sociolinguistic study
Written By: Chamindi Dilkushi Senaratne
Series Title: LOT Dissertation Series

This thesis contributes to one of the most criticized, devalued and yet highly
frequent linguistic phenomena in post-colonial urban Sri Lanka: Sinhala-English
CM. In answering the main research question of this thesis, this treatise
seeks to provide an adequate account of mixed constructions prevalent in
the Sinhala-English bilingual corpus within the framework proposed in
Muysken’s (2000) CM typology.
