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: Represented Discourse, Resonance and Stance in Joking Interaction in Mexican Spanish
Written By: Minerva Oropeza-Escobar
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 204

The book provides a new angle for the study of otherwise amply discussed
discourse and interactional phenomena. The new perspective consists in
addressing the interconnections between resonance, stance, represented
discourse and joking in Mexican conversational discourse. In so doing, it
contributes to a better understanding of the interplay between
collaboration, intersubjectivity and emergence, among other relevant
issues. Scholars and advanced students concerned with dialogic syntax
theory, stance theory and Spanish, will find the present analysis
interesting and innovative. However, the writing and methodology, based on
clearly discussed and presented examples from selected conversational
excerpts, including graphic representations of linguistic and discourse
data, makes the analysis easy to follow also to non-specialists. The book
is thus interesting to a broad circle of readers, whether they are
concerned with any of the issues dealt with or with their mutual
connections, whether they are specialists or not.
