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.

Title: Representing space in Oceania
Edited By: Giovanni Bennardo
Series Title: PL 523

Oceania has traditionally been the 'place' in which great debates about the human condition have been started, conducted, and sometimes resolved. The articles in this volume prove once more the vitality of the research conducted in this geographically vast and culturally varied area of the world. This book contributes to the investigation of space as a knowledge domain, in particular to the linguistic, mental and cultural representations of spatial relationships in
Oceania. It emphasises the significance and usefulness of cross-linguistic and cross-cultural research, and cultural area surveys. This volume is of interest not only to cultural and linguistic anthropologists, but also to linguists and cognitive psychologists, and to scholars and students of Oceania.
