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: Grammatikerwerb vor und nach der Pubertät [Grammar Acquisition Pre and Post Puberty]
Written By: Christine Czinglar
Series Title: De Gruyter DaZ-Forschung [DaZ-For] 6

The author presents a longitudinal study on verb placement in children who have spontaneously learned German as a second language. It compares the position of the verb in main and subordinate clauses in two half-sisters whose mother tongue is Russian, and who came to Germany at the ages 8 and 14, respectively. The study shows that children and adolescents differ substantially in how rapidly they can achieve stable mastery of the target language.
