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.

Title: The Nuer Language
Written By: Diedrich Westermann
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica

The Nuer who have received their name from their neighbours, the Dinkas,
Shilluks and Arabs, live in several separate sections in the Anglo-Egyptian
Sudan, and partly in Western Abyssinia. The Nuers belong to the Nilotic group.
The materials for this work were collected during a stay in Khartoum and on
Doleib Hill, a mission station. The study contains sections on sounds, parts of
speech, short sentences, and a vocabulary (Re-edition; originally published
1912 in Berlin: MSOS XV, III Abt.: 84-150, written in English).
