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 Syntax of Nominalizations across Languages and Frameworks
Edited By: Artemis Alexiadou
Monika Rathert
Series Title: Interface Explorations [IE] 23

The volume explores the syntax of nominalizations, focusing on deverbal and
deadjectival nominalizations, but also discussing the syntax of genitives
and the syntax of distinct readings of nominalizations. The volume
investigates the morpholgy-syntax interface as well as the semantics-syntax
interface in the domain of nominalizations. The theoretical frameworks
include distributed morphology, and minimalist syntax. Data from a variety
of languages are taken into consideration, e.g. Hebrew, Bulgarian, Serbian,
French, Spanish, German and English.
