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: Die slavischen Sprachen / The Slavic Languages
Subtitle: Ein internationales Handbuch zu ihrer Struktur, ihrer Geschichte und ihrer Erforschung / An International Handbook of their Structure, their History and their Investigation [Volume 1]
Edited By: Sebastian Kempgen
Peter Kosta
Tilman Berger
Karl Gutschmidt
Series Title: Handbücher zur Sprach- und Kommunikationswissenschaft / Handbooks of Linguistics and Communication Science [HSK] 32/1

The handbook presents a well balanced general view of the current state of
Slavic linguistics and the Slavic languages with regard to their synchronic
and diachronic description. In contrast to previous undertakings of a
similar nature, this handbook is not a grammar with chapters on individual
languages. Its length, the extensive scope of its subject matter, the
systematic approach and the method of description which reflect the current
state of Slavic linguistics set this handbook apart from others.
