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 Semantics of Nominalizations across Languages and Frameworks
Edited By: Monika Rathert
Artemis Alexiadou
Series Title: Interface Explorations [IE]

The volume explores the semantics of nominalizations from different
theoretical points of view: formal and lexical semantics,
cognitive-functional grammar, lexical-functional grammar, discourse
representation theory. Data from a variety of languages are taken into
account, including Hungarian, Italian, French, German and English. The
papers discuss the semantics of distinct readings of nominalizations and
meaning differences observed between competing affixes.
