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: Ozbib: A Linguistic Bibliography of Aboriginal Australia and the Torres Strait Islands
Written By: Lois Carrington
Geraldine Triffitt

This bibliography aims to include all published works on Australiana and Torres Strait Islands languages and linguistics, with the addition of relevant theses. There is a natural watershed in the listing, in that prior to 1959 emphasis is on vocabularies, texts, or songs, whereas for the past 40 years the emphasis is on linguistics and applied linguistics: analysis and comparisons, dictionaries and grammars, surveys, works on bilingual education, language policy, pidgins and crioles and Aboriginal English.
