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: An Introduction to Classical Nahuatl
Written By: Michel Launey

Now available to an English-speaking audience, this book is a comprehensive
grammar of classical Nahuatl, the literary language of the Aztecs. It offers
students of Nahuatl a complete and clear treatment of the language’s structure,
grammar, and vocabulary. It is divided into 35 chapters, beginning with basic
syntax and progressing gradually to more complex structures. Each
grammatical concept is illustrated clearly with examples, exercises, and
passages for translation. A key is provided to allow students to check their
answers. By far the most approachable textbook of Nahuatl available, this book
will be an excellent teaching tool both for classroom use and for readers
pursuing independent study of the language. It will be an invaluable resource to
anthropologists, ethnographers, historians, archaeologists, and linguists alike.
