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.

Book Information


Title: Global Literacies and the World Wide Web
Edited By: Gail E Hawisher
Cynthia L. Selfe

A critical examination of the new online literacy practices, this book provides a fascinating look at how they are determined by national, cultural and educational contexts. Hawisher and Selfe have brought together scholars from around the world, including Hungary, Australia, Palau, Cuba and the United States, in an illuminating examination of online practices in their specific culture. A lively and original challenge to conventional notions of the relationship between literacy and technology, this book celebrates the dynamic capacity of these new self-defined literacy communities with their continuing redefinition of ethnicity and differences.
