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.

Book Information


Title: Handbuch deutscher Kommunikationsverben (Handbook of German Communication Verbs)
Subtitle: Teil 2: Lexikalische Strukturen
Written By: Gisela Harras
Kristel Proost
Edeltraud Winkler
Series Title: Schriften des Instituts für Deutsche Sprache 10.2

This is the second volume of the two-volume work "Handbook of German
Communication Verbs", edited by the renowned Institut für Deutsche Sprache
(IDS) [Institute for German Language]. Whereas the first volume contains an
analytical lexicon of all German speech act verbs, the second monographic
volume includes information on and analysis of the communication verbs as a
word class, their semantics and their function. Thus, a valuable reference
work on one of the most complex and, for language use, most important word
classes in the German language is complete. This handbook represents a
standard work in linguistics.
