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: Formale Semantik und natürliche Sprache [Formal Semantics and Natural Language]
Written By: Horst Lohnstein
Series Title: de Gruyter Studium

Modern linguistics makes increasing use of abstract theories to describe the
human capacity for language. This textbook provides a clear overview of the
current theoretical concepts and analytical methods; in addition, it explains the
technical foundations of formal semantics. It is structured as an aid to teaching
and learning, with large numbers of examples and exercises, and thus it is
suitable for use by students of language and linguistics not only for self-study
but also as a guide for taught courses.
