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: Selected Proceedings of the 37th Annual Conference on African Linguistics
Edited By: Doris L. Payne
Jaime Peña
Series Title: Cascadilla Proceedings Project

This volume contains 16 papers selected from the 37th Annual Conference on
African Linguistics (ACAL 37), which was held at the University of Oregon
on April 6-9, 2006. The papers included are significant for increasing the
database of detailed studies of individual African languages. Several of
the papers deal with contact among multiple languages and consequent areal
effects, as well as language endangerment under contact. Additionally, all
of the papers in the first section of the volume, plus three of the
morphosyntax papers, are important for improving our understanding of
historical dynamics in the languages and language families of the African
continent. The complete table of contents is available at along with abstracts and the full
papers in PDF format.

This volume has been published by Cascadilla Proceedings Project, an
imprint of Cascadilla Press. All proceedings from Cascadilla Proceedings
Project are published in library binding. There is also free web access to
