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."

New from Cambridge University Press!


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: A Grammar of Goemai
Written By: Birgit Hellwig
Series Title: Mouton Grammar Library [MGL] 51

This is the first description of Goemai, a West Chadic language of Nigeria.
Goemai is spoken in a language contact area, and this contact has shaped
Goemai grammar to the extent that it can be considered a fairly untypical
Chadic language. The grammar presents the structure of the present-day
language, relates it to its diachronic sources, and adds a semantic perspective
to the description.
