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: New Trends in Crosslinguistic Influence and Multilingualism Research
Edited By: Gessica De Angelis
Jean-Marc Adrien Dewaele
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition

This book presents the latest developments in crosslinguistic influence (CLI)
and multilingualism research. The contributors, both veteran researchers and
relative newcomers to the field, situate their research in current debates in
terms of theory and data analysis and they present it in an accessible way. The
chapters investigate how and when native and non-native language knowledge
is used in language production. They focus on lexis, syntax, tense-aspect,
phonology of multilingual production and link it to a range of concepts such as
redundancy, affordances, metalinguistic awareness and L2 status. The
empirical data have been collected from participants with a wide combination of
languages: besides English, German, French and Spanish, there is Finnish,
Swedish, Polish, Chinese and Catalan.
