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."

New from Cambridge University Press!


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.

Book Information


Title: Phi-Theory
Subtitle: Phi-Features Across Modules and Interfaces
Edited By: Daniel Harbour
David Adger
Susana Béjar

Phi-features, such as person, number, and gender, present a rare
opportunity for syntacticians, morphologists and semanticists to
collaborate on a research enterprise in which they all have an equal stake
and which they all approach with data and insights from their own fields.
This volume is the first to attempt to bring together these different
strands and styles of research. It presents the core questions, major
results, and new directions of this emergent area of linguistic theory and
shows how Phi-Theory casts light on the nature of interfaces and the
structure of the grammar. The book will interest scholars and students of
all aspects of linguistic theory at graduate level and above.
