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."

New from Cambridge University Press!


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: The Logic of Pronominal Resumption
Written By: Ash Asudeh
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics

This book is a cross-linguistic investigation of resumptive pronouns and related
resumption phenomena. The author proposes a new theory of resumption based
on the use of a resource logic for semantic composition and the typologically
robust observation that resumptive pronouns are ordinary pronouns in their
morphological and lexical properties.
