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: Las familias de palabras [Word Families: Relationships Between Morphology, Semantics, and Argument Structure in Verbs Derived from “decir” and “sagen”]

Series Title: De Gruyter Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 388

For the first time in the history of research both in Spanish and German linguistics, this book undertakes a comparative study of the lexical structures commonly understood as ‘word families’ and the theoretical and methodological bases of their analysis. Using the word families derived from dec(ir) and sag(en) as a main reference point, the study discusses different theoretical approaches and positions.
