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.

Book Information


Title: Varianten der Pronominaladverbien im Neuhochdeutschen [Variants of Pronominal Adverbs in New High German]
Subtitle: Grammatische und soziolinguistische Untersuchungen
Written By: Michaela Negele
Series Title: De Gruyter Studia Linguistica Germanica 108

Working on a broad empirical (corpus driven) foundation, this work contributes to
the investigation of grammatical phenomena in the linguistic period of New High
German (17th to 21st centuries) with a focus on pronominal adverbs (e.g. davon
weiß ich nichts; da weiß ich nichts von; da weiß ich nichts davon; dadavon weiß
ich nichts). This analysis follows the trend of current grammar research by
concentrating on registers of German that is close to speech.
