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.

Cet ouvrage est la première monographie sur le genre des remarques et

standardisation de la langue et dans l’histoire de la grammaire et des théories

linguistiques (prononciation, orthographe, morphologie, syntaxe, lexique, style)
des principaux recueils du XVIIe siècle.
