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.

Title: Eine Kinyamwezi Grammatik
Written By: R. Stern
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica

Das Wort Kinyamwezi begreift eine größere Anzahl von Völkerschaften in sich. Sowohl die Leute nördlich von Tabora wie auch südlich davon nennen sich Vanyamwezi, ja selbst aus dem Munde der Vakonongo habe ich diese Selbst-bezeichnung gehört. Man darf also von ihnen allen von einer Einheit der Sprache, zugleich aber auch von einer dialektischen Verschiedenheit sprechen (aus der Einleitung entlehnt). The study contains information on orthography, nominal and verbal morphology (with special focus on the class system), and word lists (Re-edition; originally published 1906 in Berlin; written in German)
