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: Grundriss der vergleichenden Grammatik der indogermanischen Sprachen
Subtitle: Volume 3, Indices (Wort-Sach-und Autorenindex)
Written By: Karl Brugmann

This is the index volume to the monumental comparative grammar of the
Indo-European languages published by Karl Brugmann (1849–1919) in the
late-nineteenth century. It contains three indexes. The first, an index of
words, is subdivided by language and organised so as to be useable as a
comparative lexicon even by those unfamiliar with particular languages. It
shows the huge variety of languages referred to in the book, from Pali and
Venetic to Frisian and Old Cornish. The index of topics excludes categories
such as individual sound changes that are easily located via the extensive
tables of contents, but includes languages and dialects, grammatical and
phonetic categories, and concepts such as place names and music. Finally,
there is an index of names which will be of particular value to historians
of the field and bibliographers.
