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.

Title: Dictionnaire onomasiologique de l'ancien gascon (DAG)
Subtitle: Fasicule 15
Written By: Kurt Baldinger

This is the first dictionary of Old Gascon organised on thematic principles. It covers the period from the earliest extant documents to the 17th century and extends to all relevant idioms and sources - Old Gascon texts, medieval Latin and regional French. The complete dictionary will comprise some 130 80-page fascicles. From Fascicle 12 onwards the DAG is being published with a new structure for the articles, which provides more scope for semantic description and phrases. Instead of giving a multiplicity of instances, in future one selected example will be provided for purposes of contextualisation, which will enhance readability.
