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: "Perceptual Dialectology" ["Perceptual Dialectology". New Approaches to Dialectology]
Subtitle: Neue Wege der Dialektologie
Edited By: Christina Ada Anders
Markus Hundt
Alexander Lasch
Series Title: Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen

Perceptual dialectology is concerned with subjective, non-specialist, naïve
perspectives of German and the role they play in day-to-day social
interaction. What do non-specialists in linguistics think about dialects
and their speakers? What cognitive maps do they have of these dialects?
What attitudes do they have towards the dialects and their speakers? Do
non-specialists in linguistics associate particular features with the
dialects or perceive them in a special way? The book contains the latest
research findings on this subject.
