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: Relative Constructions in European Non-Standard Varieties
Written By: Adriano Murelli
Series Title: Empirical Approaches to Language Typology [EALT] 50

Cross-linguistic studies on relative constructions in European languages are
often centred on standard varieties as described in reference grammars. This
volume breaks with the tradition in that it investigates relative constructions in
non-standard varieties from a multidisciplinary perspective and addresses a
crucial question: what does Europe's typological panorama actually look like?
