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: Teaching Academic Writing
Subtitle: A Toolkit for Higher Education
Written By: Caroline Coffin

Teaching Academic Writing is a 'toolkit' to help higher education lecturers and tutors teach student writing.
Containing a range of diverse teaching strategies, the book offers both practical activities to help students develop their writing skills, and guidelines to help lecturers and tutors think in more depth about the feedback they give to students.
Recognising that different academic disciplines ask their students to be fluent in different styles of writing, the authors explore a wide variety of text types, from essays and reflective diaries to research projects and laboratory reports. The book draws on recent research and takes into account developments such as the increasing diversity of the student body, the use of the Internet, electronic tuition, and issues surrounding globalisation.
