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: The Uralic Languages
Edited By: Daniel Abondolo

This book provides a unique survey of individual Uralic languages and sub-groupings from Finnish to Selkup and Obugrian to Samoyedic. Giving both an overview and then detailed analyses of the Uralic languages, the volume describes their history and development as well as focusing on their linguistic structure. Each chapter is similarly-structured, designed for comparative study and including phonology, morphology, syntax, lexicon and sample text where available. Each includes numerous tables to support and illustrate the text and bibliographies of the major references in each language to aid further study.
