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: Sprache intermedial [Language Intermedial]
Subtitle: Stimme und Schrift, Bild und Ton
Edited By: Arnulf Deppermann
Angelika Linke
Series Title: Jahrbuch des Instituts für Deutsche Sprache 2009

In our modern society with its increasing differentiation in culture and
media, language and speech are also confronted with new demands and
contexts for their use. In the new media, text and image become
increasingly closely interwoven, and what were traditionally thought to be
firm boundaries between the material forms of language - between speech and
writing - appear as increasingly fluid. The volume deals with the diversity
of manifestations of our language and its intermedial relations with other
forms of communication, including images, body language, sounds, and music.
