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: Wie Jugendliche schreiben [How Young People Write]
Subtitle: Schreibkompetenz und neue Medien
Written By: Christa Dürscheid
Franc Wagner
Sarah Brommer
Series Title: Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 41

Today, young people write in their leisure time far more than they did 15
years ago. Most often they use new media to do their writing. This book
explores whether the frequent writing of short messages and e-mails and
participation in chats and social networks like Facebook have an influence
on writing in school. Are there any similarities and relationships between
the texts written in school and the private texts? For the first time,
based on comprehensive data from Swiss students, this book provides
empirical answers to these questions.
