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: A Paradigm Lost. The Linguistic Theory of Mikolay Kruszewski
Written By: Williams Joanna

Argues that Kruszewski's major work Ocerk nauki o jazyke ('An Outline of the Science of Language) had the potential to be seminal to the field, but because of historical factors, including his early death and the simultaneous consolidation of the Neo-grammarian paradigm, this did not happen.
