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: Dialogic Language Use. Dimensions du dialogisme. Dialogischer Sprachgebrauch.
Edited By: Irma Taavitsainen
Juhani Härmä
Jarmo Korhonen
Series Title: Mémoires de la Société Néophilologique de Helsinki

Dialogic language use can be defined as textual interaction between text
participants in constructing and negotiating meaning in discourse. The
articles in this multilingual volume show a rich variety of approaches and
ask various pragmatic, text linguistic or sociolinguistic questions about
synchronic and/or diachronic literary and non-literary materials.

Le thème de ce volume plurilingue est l'interaction verbale entre des
locuteurs, dans le but de la construction et de la négociation du sens dans
le discours. Les articles du volume relèvent de domaines tels que
l'énonciation, les études textuelles et la sociolinguistique, et portent
sur des matériaux synchroniques et diachroniques aussi bien littéraires que
non-littéraires. Grâce à la diversité des approches, l'ensemble témoigne
d'une grande richesse.

Dialogischer Sprachgebrauch kann als textuelle Interaktion der an der
Entstehung und Vermittlung von Bedeutung im Diskurs Beteiligten definiert
werden. Die Beiträge dieses mehrsprachigen Bandes demonstrieren ein breites
Spektrum von Zugangsweisen und behandeln unterschiedliche pragmatische,
textlinguistische oder soziolinguistische Fragestellungen, die sich in
synchroner und/oder diachroner Perspektive auf literarische und
nicht-literarische Gegenstände beziehen.
