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: Dialogue in Spanish
Subtitle: Studies in functions and contexts
Edited By: Dale April Koike
Lidia Rodríguez-Alfano
Series Title: Dialogue Studies 7

"Dialogue in Spanish" provides a strong theoretical and empirical
foundation for the study of dialogue. This edited collection of twelve
original studies contributes to a broad comprehension of dialogue in two
general contexts: personal interactions among friends and family; and
public speech, such as political debates, medical interviews, court
translations and service encounters. The studies, written by authors from
Canada, Mexico, Spain, Sweden, the United States and Venezuela, present
an in-depth look at issues and elements of dialogue such as irony,
narrativity, discourse markers, coherence, conflict and expectations.

Background research on dialogue grounds the articles in such areas as
discourse analysis, pragmatics, philosophy, sociology, anthropology and
linguistics. The book will prove useful to those who study conversational
interaction, pragmatics, and discourse analysis as applied to various
functions and contexts, and it will be of particular interest to
researchers and students of linguistics, anthropology, sociology,
philosophy, communications and education.
