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: A Cultural Approach to Discourse
Written By: Odette Ambouroue

Drawing on wide cultural knowledge and experience, Shi-xu critiques
universalism in discourse studies in terms of its adherence to the western
intellectual model, its whiteness and cultural singularity. In this book he
offers a more culturally pluralist approach that advocates the construction
of theory and use of methodology from an innovative position in-between
Eastern and Western cultures. He provides a set of practical discourse
research strategies,illustrated by a set of culturally wide ranging texts,
to send out a call to discourse analysts who want to look beyond their own
intellectual traditions towards a culturally- based discourse analysis
relevant to current global realities.
