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: Deutscher Familiennamenatlas [Atlas of German Family Names], Band 2: Graphematik/Phonologie der Familiennamen II
Subtitle: Konsonantismus
Edited By: Konrad Kunze
Damaris Nübling

This essential work with its more than a thousand maps and commentaries is
the first to document the surname stock of the Federal Republic of Germany
by statistical occurrence and geographical distribution. It meets the
interests of linguists with a grammatical part (three volumes) dealing with
the phonematics, graphematics, morphematics and syntagmatics of family
names, while cultural historians and population historians are served with
a lexical part (three volumes - surnames by place of origin and domicile,
by occupation and by nicknames, by given names). The atlas provides a new
basis for onomastics. It also presents an indispensable aid to other
disciplines from social history through research into settlement and
migration to genetics.

Key features:
* Standard work on German onomastics
* Contains more than 1000 annotated maps
