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.

Dániel Zoltan Kádár

The aim of this volume is to fill a long-recognised gap in communication,
discourse and culture studies by providing descriptions and analyses of
Chinese institutional interactions in various settings. This book
contributes on the one hand to the latest developments of discourse studies
with insights into the analysis of Chinese institutional interactions. On
the other hand, this volume serves as a valuable resource for readers who
intend to become acquainted with Chinese culture and institutional discourse.

field of Chinese discourse analysis. The contributions examine Chinese
institutional interactions in various settings, including business
negotiations, courtroom interactions, medical consultations, survey
interviews, and business telephone calls.
