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: El idioma tarasco
Subtitle: Sinopsis de la estructura gramatical
Written By: Paul De Wolf
Edited By: Jean-Christophe Verstraete

Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Native American Linguistics 70

This book is the third in a series on Tarascan by the late Paul de Wolf (1936-2003), complementing his earlier works Seis Estudios lingüísticos sobre la lengua phorhé (De Wolf 1989) and Curso básico del Tarasco hablado (De Wolf 1991). The manuscript was finished before Paul De Wolf's death in 2003, but had remained unpublished since. Tarascan (also known as Purépecha) is a language isolate spoken in the northwest of the state of Michoacán in Mexico. Paul De Wolf's book is based primarily on fieldwork in Tarecuato, a variety that is less well-documented than others. De Wolf offers an analysis of phonology, morphology and syntax, and pays special attention to complex sentence relations and discourse structure.
