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: Cline of the Korean Language
Subtitle: From 1945 to 2005
Written By: Sin-Hang Kang

This book shows systematically how the use of the Korean language in South
Korea has changed for fifty years.

It is composed of the following five parts: (1) the use of Korean in the
twenty first century, (2) ups and downs of words in fashion, (3) the change
of the Korean appellation system, (4) adopted words, (5) Sino-Korean words
and the education of them.

This book does not place emphasis on the norm of standard Korean, but the
real side of words and actions of Korean native speakers. So, it is a
valuable research material for studies of Korean in the latter half of the
twenty century.
