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: Tense, aspect and mood in first and second language acquisition.
Edited By: Emmanuelle Labeau
Inès Saddour
Series Title: Cahiers Chronos 24

Tense, aspect and mood have attracted much attention in the areas of both
first and second language acquisition, but scholars in the two disciplines
often fail to learn from each other. Western European languages have also
been the focus of most studies, but there would be lessons to learn from less
studied languages.

This volume offers new insights on tense, aspect and mood by bringing
together the findings of first and second language acquisition, and comparing
child and adult, monolingual and multilingual learning processes that are
approached from various theoretical points of view. In addition, it spans over
a wide range of less studied languages (Bulgarian, Hebrew, Korean, Russian),
and Western European languages are studied from new angles.
