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.

Title: Studies in Applied Linguistics and Language Learning
Edited By: Ahmar Mahboob
Caroline Lipovsky

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

"Studies in Applied Linguistics and Language Learning" brings together new
and original studies in the area of critical applied linguistics, language
policy and planning, and language learning and teaching. The book, divided
into three sections, first offers critical views on various aspects of
language in society, ranging from the construction of national identity,
language and justice, racial and identity issues in the ELT industry, to
language in business discourse. It then reports on language policy in the
school curriculum, language learning in tertiary education, and Aboriginal
languages policy. In the third section, it addresses issues in language
learning and teaching, such as the role of parents in literacy learning,
multiple script literacy, and language learning and maintenance strategies.
