By Orin Hargraves

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.

Pacific Linguistics is a publisher specialising in linguistic descriptions, dictionaries, atlases, bibliographies and other materials concerned with languages of the Pacific, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Southeast Asia and minority languages of South and East Asia. We focus on data-oriented papers on little known languages in this region as well as on teaching materials in the region’s major lingua francas. We are also concerned to publish materials on endangered languages, and this is a major reason for the establishment of our Shorter Grammars imprint.
