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.

Title: Multilingual Dictionary of Ethnology/Mehrsprachige
Written By: Gereon Janzing
Series Title: LINCOM Scientific Dictionaries 01

For some disciplines there are multilingual technical dictionaries available. For ethnology/anthropology such a book has so far been missing. Since ethnologists/anthropologists have - for reasons of their subject - a special need for reading literature in different languages, such a dictionary should be highly appreciated. If you are engaged with comparative ethnology/anthropology, you will probably need to read sources in all the great languages of the world. For the ability to compare them a multilingual technical dictionary will be of considerable use. So it should not be missing in any ethnological or anthropological institute. Some of the ideas treated in this science are usually not found in conventional bilingual dictionaries, such as for example from ethnosociology.
