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 Oxford handbook of Tense and Aspect
Edited By: Robert I Binnick

Tense and aspect are means by which language refers to time-how an event
takes place in the past, present, or future. They play a key role in understanding
the grammar and structure of all languages, and interest in them reaches across
linguistics. 'The Oxford Handbook of Tense and Aspect' is a comprehensive,
authoritative, and accessible guide to the topics and theories that currently form
the front line of research into tense, aspect, and related areas. The volume
contains 36 chapters, divided into 6 sections, written by internationally known
experts in theoretical linguistics.
