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: Die Sprachwissenschaft des 20. Jahrhunderts [20th Century Linguistics]
Subtitle: Versuch einer Bilanz
Written By: Wolfgang Wildgen

Until now an overview of the history of linguistics during the 20th century
has been lacking. With this book, Wolfgang Wildgen fills this gap. Starting
with the predecessors of Saussure, the main chapters highlight the most
important trends. Special attention is given to sustainable approaches.
Wildgen also evaluates the yield of linguistic research and completes the
book by describing the challenges of the 21st century. An appendix
discusses the problem of the mathematization of linguistics.
