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: Gesprächsideale [Ideal Dialogues]
Subtitle: Normative Gesprächsreflexion im 20. Jahrhundert
Written By: Simon Meier
Series Title: De Gruyter Studia Linguistica Germanica 116

The question of the conditions, forms, and impact of felicitous dialogue has arisen in the broadest range of academic disciplines in the 20th century. This book examines such normative theories of discourse in the German-speaking world through the perspective of discursive history and places them in a broad social and cultural historical context. It reveals the history of discourse in the 20th century by reflecting on its idealization.
