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."

New from Cambridge University Press!


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 Grammar of Q
Subtitle: Q-Particles, Wh-Movement, and Pied-Piping
Written By: Seth Alfred Cable
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax

"The Grammar of Q" puts forth a novel syntactic and semantic analysis of wh-
questions, one that is based upon in-depth study of the Tlingit language, an
endangered and under-documented language of North America. A major
consequence of this new approach is that the phenomenon classically dubbed
"pied-piping" does not actually exist.
