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: A Greek Grammar for Schools and Colleges
Written By: Herbert Weir Smyth
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 122

In making this book my aim has been, in the first place, to adapt it to the needs of students using a Greek grammar for the first time, and in the second place, to include such matters as may be of special service to undergraduates during the earlier period of their study of Greek literature. As regards the forms, it has been my purpose to set forth the essential facts of Attic speech, and of the other dialects so far as they occur in the authors ordinarily read in American schools and colleges, viz., Homer, Herodotus, and the Lyric poets. The present book differs from its precedessors of the same class, especially in attaching greater importance to exact explanations of phonetic and morphological changes (from the preface). The study contains an appendix of fourty pages with a list of verbs (Re-edition; originally published 1916 in New York; written in English)
