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: Assessing Grammar
Subtitle: The Languages of LARSP
Edited By: Martin J. Ball
David Crystal
Paul Fletcher
Series Title: Communication Disorders Across Languages

This collection is a resource book for those working with language disordered
clients in a range of languages. It collects together versions of the well-known
Language Assessment Remediation Screening Procedure (LARSP) prepared for
different languages. Starting with the original version for English, the book then
presents versions in more than a dozen other languages. Some of these are
likely to be encountered as home languages of clients by speech-language
therapists and pathologists working in the UK, Ireland, the US and Australia and
New Zealand. Others are included because they are major languages found
where speech-language pathology services are provided, but where no
grammatical profile already exists.
