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: The Tocharian Verbal System
Written By: Melanie Malzahn
Series Title: Brill's Studies in Indo-European Languages & Linguistics

This book presents a synchronic and diachronic study of all verbal classes and
categories of the Tocharian branch of Indo-European. It lists all attested
Tocharian verbal forms, together with semantic and etymological information.
The material has been subject to careful philological evaluation and incorporates
unedited or unpublished texts of the Berlin, London, and Paris collections. In
addition, this study consistently takes into account the linguistic variation within
the Tocharian B language and the relative chronology of texts. Moreover,
Tocharian offers crucial evidence for the reconstruction of the PIE verbal
system, and is also of interest to the general linguist for the interaction of voice
and valency.
