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: Converging Evidence
Subtitle: Methodological and theoretical issues for linguistic research
Edited By: Doris Schönefeld
Series Title: Human Cognitive Processing 33

The volume argues for the use of multi-methodological strategies in linguistic
research. In its lead chapter, in addition, the thorny issue of phenomenological
pluralism is explored in detail. From a usage-based perspective, the individual
chapters demonstrate methodological pluralism in the investigation of meaning,
language acquisition, and discourse. The chapters report on studies in which the
use of corpus data is combined with other methodological tools, e.g.
experimentally elicited findings, showing how introspection and the analysis of
performance data go hand in hand to provide empirical support for researchers’
hypotheses. Some of the authors inspire the discussion in usage-based
linguistics, proposing innovative methods of analysis. Others adopt such
methods and combine them in original ways. The cutting-edge studies
presented in this volume should be of great interest to scholars and students of
cognitive and corpus linguistics who want to familiarize themselves with recent
methodological advances and their applications in the field.
