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.

Subtitle: Theoretical perspectives on formal linguistics. In honor of D. Terence Langendoen

Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 135

This volume is a collection of papers that highlights some recurring themes
that have surfaced in the generative tradition in linguistics over the past
40 years. The volume is more than a historical take on a theoretical
tradition; rather, it is also a "compass" pointing to exciting new
empirical directions inspired by generative theory. In fact, the papers
show a progression from core theoretical concerns to data-driven
experimental investigation and can be divided roughly into two categories:
those that follow a syntactic and theoretical course, and those that follow
an experimental or applied path. Many of the papers revisit long-standing
or recurring themes in the generative tradition, some of which seek
experimental validation or refutation. The merger of theoretical and
experimental concerns makes this volume stand out, but it is also forward
looking in that it addresses the recent concerns of the creation and
consumption of data across the discipline.
