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.

Subtitle: Thematische Korpora als Basis diskurslinguistischer Analysen
Edited By: Ekkehard Felder
Marcus Müller
Friedemann Vogel
Series Title: De Gruyter: Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 44

This volume considers, from both theoretical and empirical standpoints, how
pragmatic phenomena can be investigated using corpus linguistics. It includes
individual contributions based in the study of German, English and Romance
language and literature. They discuss corpus pragmatic procedures, results and
infrastructures from research relating to Critical Discourse Analysis, Foucault’s
linguistics of discourse, research on speech acts, computer linguistics and
historical pragmatics. The result is a comprehensive overview of the present
state of debate on corpus linguistics in important areas of today’s pragmatics.
