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: Null Pronouns
Edited By: Melanie Wratil
Peter Gallmann
Series Title: Studies in Generative Grammar [SGG] 106

Most natural languages display an inventory of pronominal elements that
obligatorily or optionally remain phonologically null in a few, in many or even in
all syntactic surroundings. The authors of the papers compiled in this book
analyse such null pronouns in a synchronic and diachronic way and recover the
specific morphological and syntactic prerequisites for their origin and insertion.
