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: Lexical-Semantic Relations
Subtitle: Theoretical and practical perspectives
Edited By: Petra Storjohann
Series Title: Lingvisticæ Investigationes Supplementa 28

This collection of articles sketches the complexity of the subject of
lexical-semantic relations and addresses semantic, lexicographic and
computational issues on an array of meaning relations in different
languages. It brings together a variety of linguistic studies on the
contextualised construction of synonymy and antonymy in discourse. It shows
that research on language and cognition calls for empirical evidence from
different sources. This volume demonstrates how the internet, corpus data,
as well as psycholinguistic methods contribute profitably to gain insights
into the nature of the paradigmatics in actual language use. Furthermore,
the volume is concerned with practical and application-oriented research on
lexical databases, and it includes explorations of sense-related items in
dictionaries from both a text-technological and lexicographic perspective.
