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: Bilingualism and Multilingualism
Edited By: Li Wei
Series Title: Critical Concepts in Linguistics

Although scientific studies of the language behaviour of polyglots began to
appear in the nineteenth century, it is only in the last fifty years or so
that bilingualism and multilingualism have been recognized as crucial areas
of linguistic research. This new four-volume collection from Routledge
showcases the major achievements in this now vibrant multidisciplinary field.
