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: Identity Trouble
Edited By: Carmen Rosa Caldas-Coulthard
Rick Iedema

In Identity Trouble, international scholars from discourse analysis, social
semiotics, cultural theory, ethnography, conversational analysis,
organization and pedagogy studies, come together to focus on the rising
pressures on contemporary identity and on how people are increasingly
crossing the borders that traditionally define self, space, learning and
work. Particular attention is paid to occasions where our identity
accomplishment comes under threat, or fails - the troubles that emerge
during people's identity constructions and enactments as they face, or try
to explain, rising personal, social, cultural and organizational uncertainties.
