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: Studies on German-Language Islands
Edited By: Michael T. Putnam
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 123

The contributions in this volume present cutting-edge theoretical and
structural analyses of issues surrounding German-language islands, or
Sprachinseln, throughout the world. The individual topics of study
in this volume focus on various aspects of these German-language islands
such as (but not limited to) phonological, morphological, syntactic,
semantic, and pragmatic aspects of these languages under investigation.
Collectively, the body of research contained in this volume explores
significantly under-researched topics in the fields of language contact and
language attrition and illustrates how this on-going research can be
enhanced through the application of formal theoretical frameworks and
structural analyses.
