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.

The present book is based on the presentations made during the IXth International School on Lexicography “Multi-disciplinary Lexicography: Traditions and Challenges of the XXIst century” (Ivanovo State University, September 8-10, 2011) and continues a series of collective monographs devoted to theoretical and practical problems of lexicography, published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing in 2007, 2009, 2010. The scope of topics discussed in four parts (Dictionary as a Cross-road of Language and Culture, Dictionary Use and Dictionary Criticism, Terminology and LSP Studies, Projects of New Dictionaries) is rather wide and focuses on burning problems of European, Russian and world lexicography, as well as on projects of new dictionaries. The book might be interesting for theoreticians, practitioners, and students of linguistic faculties.
