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.

Book Information


Title: Die Ellipse [Ellipsis]
Subtitle: Neue Perspektiven auf ein altes Phänomen [New perspectives on an old phenomenon]
Edited By: Mathilde Hennig
Series Title: De Gruyter Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 52

In modern linguistics, ellipsis has been a subject of interest in various subdisciplines, including grammar research, psycholinguistics, and language philosophy. This compendium relates these “old” perspectives to each other while also opening up new perspectives – for example, in interactional linguistics and computer linguistics. As a result, this volume not only provides insights into the current status of research about ellipsis, but also highlights novel directions for future investigation.
