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: Essai d'histoire sociolinguistique
Subtitle: Le français picard au Moyen Âge
Written By: Serge Lusignan

Dans une perspective d'histoire sociolinguistique, ce livre analyse les conditions qui permirent au français picard d'occuper une place centrale dans la culture écrite des trois derniers siècles du Moyen Âge. Langue de la création littéraire, de l'administration et de la régulation sociale, le picard fut utilisé jusqu'en régions néerlandophones. Sa maîtrise à l'écrit s'appuyait sur un enseignement dans les écoles urbaines du Nord ; les villes en furent d'ailleurs le principal foyer de rayonnement. Taking a historical sociolinguistic perspective, this book analyses the conditions which allowed the French of Picardie to occupy a central place in the written culture of the last three centuries of the Middle Ages.
