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: The Nature of Rules, Regularities and Units in Language
Subtitle: A Network Model of the Language System and of Language Use
Written By: Rolf Michael Kreyer
Series Title: Cognitive Linguistics Research [CLR] 51

Comprehensive networks of language make use of structures that go beyond the basic associative connections that can be found in the brain. The present study is an attempt to provide an account of language that restricts itself to structures of a neurophysiological kind, i.e. simple nodes, excitatory and inhibitory connections.
