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: ELT
Subtitle: Converging Approaches and Challenges, Proceedings of the 7th International and 11th National Conference of the Association of Teachers of English of the Czech Republic (ATECR)
Edited By: Christoph Haase
Natalia Orlova

This volume represents an outgrowth of the VIIth international ATECR
conference, which brought together researchers and educators from fields as
diverse as language teaching in a variety of contexts, corpus linguistics or
literary studies. The contributions in this volume show - despite their diversity
- a strong common denominator: to bundle efforts and unify parameters in
order to optimize English Language Teaching as a world-wide endeavor.
Thus, for our teaching it can only be beneficial when linguists talk to literary-
minded teachers or methodology specialists investigate whether their
theoretical underpinnings make their way into practice by talking to language
instructors or language service providers. In general, the authors present a
multifaceted picture of the English Language teaching context with
themselves as practitioners but also as investigators and researchers at the
same time. The research that reflects back on their teaching thus creates a
force-feedback loop not only for the investigating scholar but also for the
practicing instructor who reapplies his/her knowledge after failed or
suboptimal attempts as evidenced by the data.
