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: Das konfessionelle Flugblatt 1563–1580 [The Religious Pamphlet, 1563–1580]
Subtitle: Eine Studie zur historischen Semiotik und Textanalyse
Written By: Nina-Maria Klug
Series Title: Studia Linguistica Germanica 112

The written genre of the religious pamphlet stands out as a deeply
characteristic form of public communication in the early modern period, not
least on account of its inseparable combination of language and images.
This study undertakes an analysis of semiotically complex religious
pamphlets from the late 16th century, thereby making a contribution to
research in linguistic history that is culturally oriented. In the process,
it illustrates the opportunities for using frame semantics to analyze both
verbal and visual texts.
