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: 1968
Subtitle: Eine sprachwissenschaftliche Zwischenbilanz [1968. A Linguistic Interim Status Report]
Edited By: Heidrun Kämper
Joachim Scharloth
Martin Wengeler
Series Title: De Gruyter Sprache und Wissen 6

The cipher “1968” evokes a remembrance that has a strong impact on the collective memory, especially through its language. After forty years the time has come for an interim status report, which this collective volume undertakes. It mainly contains linguistic contributions on “1968”, presenting and describing the various manifestations and aspects of this language. Thus, it represents a contribution of cultural-studies to the history of language, as well as to semiotics, and to the history of the media and contemporary history.
