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: Terminology in Everyday Life
Edited By: Marcel Thelen
Frieda Steurs
Series Title: Terminology and Lexicography Research and Practice 13

Terminology in Everyday Life contains a selection of fresh and
interesting articles by prominent scholars and practitioners in the field
of terminology based on papers presented at an international terminology
congress on the impact of terminology on everyday life. The volume brings
together theory and practice of terminology and deals with such issues as
the growing influence of European English on terminology, terminology on
demand, setting up a national terminological infrastructure, the relevance
of frames and contextual information for terminology, and standardisation
through automated term extraction and editing tools. The book wants to
demonstrate that terminology is of everyday importance and is of interest
to everyone interested in the theory and practice of terminology, from
terminologists to computer specialists to lecturers and students.
