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: Cover Strategien der Integration und Isolation nicht-nativer Einheiten und Strukturen
Subtitle: [Strategies of Integration and Isolation of Non-Native Units and Structures]
Edited By: Carmen Scherer
Anke Holler
Series Title: Linguistische Arbeiten 532

This volume studies how speakers deal with loanwords from foreign
languages. Are foreign words adapted in pronunciation, writing, flexion and
syntax to the recipient language or do they keep characteristics of the
language of their origin? Do loan units change the system of the recipient
language or do they get changed by it? Methodical considerations to
identify foreign words supplement these studies on German, Polish, Hebrew
and Japanese.
