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: The Articulate Mammal
Written By: Jean Aitchison

This highly successful text has been substantially revised to take account of the considerable changes in Chomsky's recent ideas. The chapters on grammatical innateness, child language acquisition, and speech comprehension have been largely rewritten and new material and references throughout the book make it completely up-to-date with key developments in the field.
