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: Reviving Catalan at School
Subtitle: Challenges and Instructional Approaches
Edited By: Joaquim Arnau

This book presents a comprehensive picture of languages and schools in Catalan-speaking countries, making much of the information available in English for the first time. The chapters examine multiple aspects of the language situation in these countries, including: the recovery of Catalan in schools; the position and status of the majority languages (English and Spanish); language-in-education policies in a multilingual, multicultural context; the possibility of multilingual competence; and the successes and failures of instructional processes.
