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."

New from Cambridge University Press!


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: Ne pas dire
Subtitle: Pour une étude du non-dit dans la littérature et la culture européennes
Edited By: Peter Schnyder

Le non-dit est à la littérature ce que le silence est à la musique. À travers ses degrés de densité expressive, il peut exprimer l'inavouable et l'indicible. Du mutisme au geste qui signifie, la communication non verbale offre un vaste champ d'expérimentation des textes et des œuvres d'art. The unsaid is to literature what silence is to music. Varying in degrees of expressiveness, it communicates what cannot be admitted or spoken of. From mutism to telling gestures, non-verbal communication provides a vast area of experimentation for texts and artworks.
