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 today’s globalized world of international contact and multicultural

a pre-requisite for social harmony and organisational success. This
handbook takes a “problem-solving” approach to the various issues that

together experts from a range of disciplines, including linguistics,
psychology and anthropology, to provide a multi-disciplinary perspective on
the field, whilst simultaneously anchoring it in Applied Linguistics.
