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: L2 Writing Development: Multiple Perspectives
Edited By: Rosa Manchón
Series Title: Trends in Applied Linguistics [TAL] 6

The aim of this pioneering volume is to advance our understanding of
written language learning in instructed SLA by offering a collection of
empirical studies in which the contribution of diverse theoretical
perspectives to our understanding of L2 writing development will be
explored. As such, the book represents a further attempt to situate written
language learning at the core of applied linguistics research, in general,
and SLA research, in particular, hence attempting to redress the oral bias
of theoretical and empirical work in these fields. It adds a further
building block onto recent TESOL initiatives aimed at understanding
"development" in second and foreign language learning. Continuity from one
chapter to another is provided by adherence to a consistent chapter model.
The volume will be of great interest to academics in the disciplines of
second/foreign language acquisition (SLA) and second/foreign language (L2)
