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: Metonymie und Diskurskontinuität im Französischen
Subtitle: [Metonymy and Discourse Continuity in French]
Written By: Beate Kern
Series Title: Linguistische Arbeiten 531

Metonymy, apart from metaphor, represents an additional important cognitive
mechanism used in our everyday language. One can assume that such a
mechanism does not remain without any effects on the related structures in
the discourse. To study this hitherto rather neglected discursive dimension
of metonymy, excerpts from a French news magazine were analyzed with
respect to the interaction of metonymy with its discursive environment.
