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: Recherches fonctionelles et structurales 2009
Edited By: Bohumil Vykypěl
Vít Boček
Series Title: Travaux linguistiques de Brno 05

The main topic of the present volume is the Prague School. In his general
paper, B. Vykypĕl asks “What is the Prague School?” In an appendix, answers
to this question by prominent contemporary linguists (Bybee, Comrie, Givón,
Langacker, Mel’čuk and others) are published. O. Sládek treats the activity
of the representatives of the Prague theory of literature and art in exile
(“The Prague School in the United States”). V. Boček deals with the
relationship of E. Coseriu and the Prague typology (“Bemerkungen zur Prager
Typologie und der integralen Typologie”). I. Vasiljev has applied the
Prague typology to description of Vietnamese (“The type of Vietnamese”).

T. Vykypĕlová treats, from the point of view of the Prague phonology, the
problem of syllabic liquids (“Zu den silbenbildenden Liquiden in den
slawischen Sprachen”). L. Zajícová investigates the contact of Czech and
Spanish in Paraguay (“Grammatical changes in Czech spoken by the immigrant
community in Paraguay: first examples”). Finally, unpublished letters of R.
Jakobson to his first wife are edited by P. Kuldanová.
