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: Corpus Linguistics 25 Years On
Edited By: Roberta Facchinetti
Series Title: Language and Computers Vol. 62

This volume offers a state-of-the-art picture of work undertaken in the
field of computer-aided corpus linguistics. While the focus is on English,
central insights can be generalised to other languages, as well.

As a work intended to mark the Silver Jubilee of ICAME, the 'International
Computer Archive of Modern and Medieval English', the book combines surveys
of the discipline by some of its major pioneers, including founders of
ICAME itself, with cutting-edge work by younger scholars. It is divided
into three sections: "Overviewing years of corpus linguistic studies",
"Descriptive studies in English syntax and semantics", and "Second Language
Acquisition, parallel corpora and specialist corpora".

The book bears witness to the impressive advances that have characterised
the development of corpus linguistics over the past few decades – from
terminological issues to practical applications, from theoretical and
descriptive research to applied approaches, from monolingual to
multilingual and specialist corpora, from corpus design to corpus
exploitation tools.
