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.

Title: Balinese morphosyntax
Subtitle: A lexical-functional approach
Written By: I Wayan Arka

This book is the first comprehensive study of Balinese morphosyntax from a lexicalist perspective.  It discusses intricate facts in the relationship between morphosyntax and semantics in Balinese and highlights the significance of the facts with regard to linguistic theory and language typology.  It provides in-depth discussions on important topics in linguistics: split intransitivity, grammatical relations (subjecthood and termhood), phrase structures, argument structures, reflexive binding and morpholexical derivations (passivisation, applicativisation and causativisation).  This book is an essential reference for students and researchers (theoreticians, typologists and Austronesianists).
