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: Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory 2009
Subtitle: Selected papers from 'Going Romance' Nice 2009
Edited By: Janine Berns
Haike Jacobs
Tobias Scheer
Series Title: Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory 3

The annual "Going Romance" conference has developed into the major
European discussion forum for theoretically relevant research on Romance
languages where current ideas about language in general and about Romance
languages in particular are tested. The twenty-third "Going Romance"
conference was a very special one: for the first time it was not hosted by one of
the Dutch universities, but was co-organized by the Radboud University
Nijmegen and the Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis and held in France at the
Maison du Séminaire in Nice from 3-5 December 2009. The present volume
contains a broad range of peer-reviewed articles dealing with syntax, phonology,
morphology, semantics and acquisition of the Romance languages as well as
selected papers from the special workshop dealing with linguistic change in
relation to linguistic theory.
