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: Sprache und Musik
Subtitle: Hommage an Georg Heike
Edited By: Ulrike Gross
Michael Thiergart
Series Title: Hallesche Schriften zur Sprechwissenschaft und Phonetik

Diese Festschrift ist als Hommage an Georg Heike von zweien seiner Schüler entstanden. Im Zentrum von Heikes Schaffen standen Wissenschaft und Kunst, Sprache und Musik: Georg Heike hat Schallforschung immer fachübergreifend gesehen und betrieben. Während er das Institut für Phonetik der Universität zu Köln leitete, standen die Türen Wissenschaftlern und Künstlern gleichermaßen offen. Diese Offenheit soll dieser Band widerspiegeln, in dem Kompositionen und wissenschaftliche Texte nebeneinander stehen.
