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: Dimensions of Vocabulary Knowledge
Written By: James Milton
Tess Fitzpatrick

This volume defines vocabulary knowledge in each of the areas identified in Nation's framework of 'what is involved in knowing a word', and presents some of the latest exemplary research in these areas. It also explores how learners handle what they know, or partly know, in foreign language vocabulary, and how they activate this information.
