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: Language, Discourse and Social Psychology
Edited By: Ann Weatherall
Bernadette Watson
Cindy Gallois
Series Title: Palgrave Advances

Language and communication are central features of social behaviour. So, it
is somewhat surprising that the social psychological study of language,
communication and discourse has a relatively short history. In this book a
leading group of language, discourse and social psychology scholars will
overview the history, theories and methods of the field. However, the main
focus is on current developments in the social psychology of language and
discourse, showcasing cutting edge empirical work.
