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: Keeping in touch with Pragma-Dialectics
Subtitle: In honor of Frans H. van Eemeren
Edited By: Eveline T. Feteris
Bart Garssen
Francisca Snoeck Henkemans

Keeping in touch with Pragma-Dialectics is written to honor
Frans van Eemeren and his work in the field of argumentation theory on
the occasion of his retirement. The volume contains 17 contributions
from teams of authors consisting of a combination of a pragma-
dialectician and one or two researchers with a different background in
the field of argumentation. In this volume, comparisons between the
pragma-dialectical approach and other approaches are made, aspects of
strategic maneuvering such as the use of presentational techniques,
adaptation to the audience and the selection of topics are dealt with and
the influence of specific institutional contexts such as politics, medicine
and internet forums on strategic maneuvering are discussed.
