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.

Kaitakusha was founded in 1927 by Naoe Naganuma, the authority on language teaching, with the co-operation of prominent linguists in Japan and abroad, with a view to enhancing and improving language education in Japan.

Working together with The Institute for Research in Language Teaching, which was established under the presidency of Dr. Harold E. Palmer, who was engaged in introducing reforms in English teaching in Japan, Kaitakusha brought out the publications of the Institute together with its own unique publications.

These number hundreds of volumes since the company's foundation, and Kaitakusha has been taking the lead in contributing greatly towards the development of language teaching in Japan as well as drawing the attention of extensive English teaching circles abroad.
