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: Towards a "Natural" Narratology
Written By: Monika Fludernik

In this ground breaking work of synthesis, Monika Fludernik combines
insights from literary theory and linguistics to provide a challenging new
theory of narrative.

This book is both an historical survey and theoretical study, with the
author drawing on an enormous range of examples from the earliest oral
study to contemporary experimental fiction. She uses these examples to
prove that recent literature, far from heralding the final collapse of
narrative, represents the epitome of a centuries long developmental process.
