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: Of Grammar, Words, and Verses
Subtitle: In honor of Carlos Piera
Edited By: Esther Torrego
Series Title: Language Faculty and Beyond 8

This book offers new work by some major figures in the field of linguistics,
addressing old debates from the perspective of current explanatory grammatical
theory. These include paradigmatic relations among words, and agreeing
adjectives and their grammatical source. Covering a broad range of empirical
domains, the contributors of this volume examine the role of Economy in syntax
and in syntactic interfaces with phonology and semantics, and their implications
for processing. The evidence is taken from a great variety of languages,
including Arabic dialects, Basque, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German,
Latin, and Spanish. Two chapters on metrics complete honoring Carlos Piera’s
longstanding scholarship in linguistic theory within Spain and abroad.
