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: Production-Comprehension Asymmetries in Child Language
Edited By: Angela Grimm
Anja Müller
Cornelia Hamann
Esther Ruigendijk
Series Title: Studies on Language Acquisition [SOLA] 43

This book summarizes papers from the workshop 'Production-Comprehension
Asymmetries in Child Language' held in Osnabrück in 2009. The starting point of
the workshop was the observation that children's production skills appear to
precede their comprehension skills in a number of phenomena, e.g. pronouns or
negation. The volume provides cross-linguistic evidence for such asymmetric
development and investigates grammatical and methodical explanations of the
observed asymmetries.
