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: Kafka parlait-il tchèque?
Subtitle: La socialisation des écrivains de langue allemande à Prague
Written By: Hartmut Binder

Franz Kafka passe en France pour un écrivain hors sol, parlant un allemand desséché. Hartmut Binder remonte à la source de ce mythe et décrit une société où trois peuples se lient en deux langues, selon une logique subtile qui permet l'épanouissement de la littérature de langue allemande à Prague. In France, Franz Kafka is seen as a rootless writer, speaking a dried-up German. Hartmut Binder goes back to the source of this myth and describes a society in which three peoples are bound together by two languages, following a subtle logic which allows German-language literature to flourish in Prague.
