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: Standardvariation
Subtitle: Wie viel Variation verträgt die deutsche Sprache?
Edited By: Ludwig M. Eichinger
Werner Kallmeyer
Series Title: IDS Jahrbuch 2004

The papers in this volume focus on the following questions: what does the
term 'standard language' comprise, how has Standard German developed since
the 19th century, how can linguistics adequately describe its present
state, and what long term developmental tendencies can be identified in it?
The answers to these questions also reflect the necessity for normativity
and its boundaries.
