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.

The Linguistics Research Center (LRC) is the research arm of the Linguistics Department at UC Santa Cruz. It facilitates research in theoretical linguistics -- phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics -- which draws on a range of frameworks and methodological approaches. The LRC's mission is to enhance the environment for linguistic research at UCSC. It coordinates the Department's research efforts, is involved in the dissemination of the results of that research, and provides a venue for Department members to collaborate with other scholars at UCSC and scholars from other institutions.
