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: Language, the Sexes and Society
Written By: Philip M. Smith

Recent research has set out clearly enough how men and women use language
in different ways. But this research has frequently failed to identify the
social, psychological and linguistic processes that underlie sex
differences in language. Philip Smith adopts here a completely fresh
approach. In studying the various roles that language, speech and
communication play in relations between the sexes, he identifies and
illuminates the processes involved- such as stereotyping, social
categorization and discrimination.
