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: Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory 2006
Subtitle: Selected papers from 'Going Romance', Amsterdam, 7-9 December 2006
Edited By: Danièle Torck
Leo Wetzels
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 303

The annual conference series ‘Going Romance’ has developed into a major
European discussion forum where ideas about language and linguistics and
about Romance languages in particular are put in an inter­active
perspective, giving room to both universality and Romance-internal
variation. The current volume contains a selection of the papers that were
presented at the 20th Going Romance conference, held at the VU University
in Amsterdam in December 2006. The papers in the volume deal with current
issues in phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics, and range across a
variety of Romance languages.
