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: Greek Grammar
Written By: E. A. Sonnenschein
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 69

The volume is composed of two parts, Accidence (summarizing declension,
comparison, conjugation) and Syntax. Contents of Accidence: noun, adjectives,
adverbs, verbs. Contents of Syntax: Sentence construction (subject, predicate,
attributes and adjuncts, complex sentences, meaning of forms (case,
prepositons, voice, moods and tenses), etc.

In this volume a common point of view is secured by basing the treatment of
Syntax on a certain scheme of sentence analysis, which is independent of
linguistic form, in other words, by basing Syntax primarily upon meanings. This
method brings us the strong relief not only the similarieties, but also the
differences between languages (adopted from the preface of the second part).
