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.

Abstract: Sentence and text segmentations refer to weight, rank and scope we can attribute to /L/the arguments they contain. In these terms, segmentation of speech units implies a /L/hierarchy between predicate constituents in a finite set of both linguistic operations /L/and relational networks. This basic intervention lists some questions about it, giving /L/a few examples of sentence and text frameworks, within a context of L1-L2.
