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: Linguistic Realization of Evidentiality in European Languages
Edited By: Gabriele Diewald
Elena Smirnova
Series Title: Empirical Approaches to Language Typology [EALT] 49

This book presents a selection of contributions to the workshop "Linguistic
realization of evidentiality in European languages", held at the 30th
Annual Convention of the German Society of Linguistics in Bamberg (February
27-29, 2008), and additional papers, which have been especially
commissioned for this volume. Its main focus lies on providing further
empirical evidence about languages that have various - lexical as well as
grammatical - evidential expressions.

The papers in this volume will offer a cross-linguistic perspective on this
topic as they deal with a number of different language families and
languages: Romance languages (French, Spanish, Italian), Germanic languages
(Dutch, German, English, Icelandic), Baltic and Slavic languages, Greek,
Basque, and Turkish.
