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: Chinese Matters: From Grammar to First and Second Language Acquisition
Edited By: Chris Wilder
Tor Anders Åfarli

This book addresses topics in Chinese grammar and the acquisition of
Chinese as a first and second language. The studies presented share a
common framework and comparative perspective. Changing global perspectives
bring new language contacts into focus, and the Chinese-Norwegian
connection figures prominently among the contributions, which include
investigations of Chinese-Norwegian bilingual children and
Norwegian-speaking L2 learners of Chinese.
