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.

Title: Multiple Voices in Academic and Professional Discourse
Subtitle: Current Issues in Specialised Language Research, Teaching and New Technologies
Edited By: Sergio Maruenda-Bataller
Begoña Clavel-Arroitia

The demands of today’s society for greater specialization have brought about
a profound transformation in the humanities, which are not immune to the
competitive pressure to meet new challenges that are present in other
sectors. Thus, lecturers and researchers in modern languages and applied
linguistics departments have made great efforts to design syllabi and
materials more attuned to the competences and requirements of potential
working environments. At the same time, linguists have attempted to apply
their expertise in wider areas, creating research institutes that focus on
applying language and linguistics in different contexts and offering linguistic
services to society as a whole.This book attempts to provide a global view of
the multiple voices involved in interdisciplinary research and innovative
proposals in teaching specialized languages while offering contributions that
attempt to fill the demands of a varied scope of disciplines such as the
sciences, professions, or educational settings. The chapters in this book are
made up of current research on these themes: discourse analysis in
academic and professional genres, specialized translation, lexicology and
terminology, and ICT research and teaching of specialized languages.
