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: Historische Sprachwissenschaft [Historical Linguistics]
Subtitle: Erkenntnisinteressen, Grundlagenprobleme, Desiderate
Edited By: Péter Maitz
Series Title: De Gruyter Studia Linguistica Germanica 110

Contemporary historical linguistics is characterized by basic instabilities
in its theoretical foundations. The studies in this volume both reveal and
question this theoretical instability. The authors reflect about the
potentials and limitations of different paths to knowledge, different
underlying theoretical and methodological principles, as well as about
those aspects of research on the history of language linked to the history
of science and epistemology.
