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: Schriftsystem und Schrifterwerb [Writing System and Writing Acquisition]
Subtitle: linguistisch - didaktisch - empirisch
Edited By: Ursula Bredel
Astrid Müller
Gabriele Hinney
Series Title: Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 289

The collective volume brings together the linguistic and didactic findings on the
structure and acquisition of the German writing system. Based on current
research on the German written language it is shown that its structures can be
systematically described in the core area. The book discusses whether these
insights can be used for didactic conceptions on written language acquisition.
Concrete examples from German instruction illustrate the acquisition problems
and discuss effective learning measures based on learning by discovery.
