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: Schulgrammatik und Sprachunterricht im Wandel [School Grammar and Language Instruction in Transition]
Edited By: Klaus-Michael Köpcke
Arne Ziegler
Series Title: De Gruyter Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 297

The articles in this volume debate the why’s and how-to’s of grammar instruction. They reflect critically on contemporary and quite recent insights about language teaching. In this way, the compendium offers an up-to-date picture of international research on language didactics. The aim is to re-examine the importance of grammar in the university training of future teachers by confronting established assumptions about working with grammar and language instruction in primary schools with newer concepts emerging from linguistic research.
