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: Tense-Aspect, Transitivity and Causativity
Edited By: Leonid Kulikov
Werner Abraham

This collection presents typological work on tense, aspect, and epistemic
modality in a variety of languages and against the background of different
schools of thinking, among which the St. Petersburg Typological School
developed and so masterfully implemented by the Petersburg linguist,
Vladimir Petrovich Nedjalkov. The volume honors this reputed scholar for
his life work. It is in mainly this spirit (and the EUROTYPE spirit) that
the following scholars have contributed to the volume: T.Tsunoda on
Warrungu (Australian indigeneous language), L. Kulikov on Vedic, K. Kiryu
on Japanese, Korean and Newari, N. Sumbatova on Svan (from the Kartvelian
group), T.Bulygina & A. Shmelev on Russian, W. Boeder on Georgian, R.
Thieroff on aorist and imperfect in European languages, Y. Poupynin on
Russian, L. Johanson on Kipchak Turkic, I. Dolinina on Russian, N.
Kozintseva on Old and Modern Eastern Armenian, Ch. Lee on Korean, W.
Abraham on split ergative languages and German, G. Silnitsky on Russian, V.
Plungian on Russian, E. Rakhilina on Russian, and K. Ebert on Kalmyk.
