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: Die Sprachpolitik des Europarats [The Language Policy of the Council of Europe]
Subtitle: Die
Edited By: Franz Lebsanft
Monika Wingender

The “European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages” of the Council of
Europe now applies in 25 states. The articles in this volume examine the basic
concept and the language planning measures of the treaty from the linguistic
and legal perspectives. A large number of concrete case studies are used to
investigate whether the Charter is adequate to current European situations of
multilingualism and whether it provides convincing solutions to situations of
linguistic conflict.
