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: Dora Noyes DeSautel |a k| captikWL
Subtitle: [Okanagan Salish Narratives]
Written By: Anthony Mattina
Madeline DeSautel

This book is an edition of eight Colville-Okanagan Salish captík^ߨ (myths, legends) narrated in the 1970s by Dora Noyes DeSautel (1902-1982). A biographical sketch of the narrator, written by Adrian Holm, opens the book. An introductory section describes where and how the narratives were told, recorded, and edited; includes the free translations of the narratives along with brief explanatory notes; and sketches the basic inflect-ional facts of the language. The rest of the volume is the interlinearization of the eight texts in four lines: the surface phonetics, the segmentation of the line in stems and inflectional affixes, the morpheme gloss line, and the free translation. A glossary of all morphemes that occur in the texts completes the book. An audio
CD of the eight narratives accompanies the book.
