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."

New from Cambridge University Press!


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: Traços de mudança e de permanência em editoriais de jornais pernambucanos
Subtitle: Da forma ao sentido
Written By: Valéria Severina Gomes
Series Title: Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 352

This book deals with the Press in Brazil in its historical, social and
cultural context, with particular attention being paid to the strategies of
printed written communication. The author reconstructs the constellation of
texts into which the discursive tradition of the editorial is integrated.
The emphasis is placed on the description of the features of both
linguistic and extra-linguistic change and continuity which characterise
leading articles published in Brazilian Portuguese in the 19th century so
that the relationship between the historicity of the language and the text
is impressed on the reader.

Este livro aborda as configurações históricas, sociais e culturais da
imprensa; acompanha as práticas, tendências e estratégias da comunicação
impressa; reconstitui a constelação de textos na qual o editorial está
inserido; e descreve os traços de mudança e de permanência em termos
lingüísticos e extralingüísticos na composição do editorial e no português
brasileiro do século XIX, estabelecendo, assim, a relação entre a
historicidade da língua e do texto.
