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: Studies in the Morpho-Syntax of Greek
Edited By: Artemis Alexiadou

The volume presents a collection of papers of recent generative work on
Modern Greek morpho-syntax. The book is divided into three parts. Part I of
the book deals with argument alternations, Part II with clitics and Part
III with the syntax and semantics of free relatives. The book will be
interesting for scholars working on Greek but also in theoretical
linguistics, as it exemplifies how the study of Greek feeds the development
of generative theory.

The issues discussed in the book are currently highly relevant for the
develop­ment of a satisfactory theory of comparative syntax as well as the
interface between syntax and morphology and syntax and semantics. Thus the
analyses put forth here will contribute to the elaboration of such a theory
and to our understanding of cross-linguistic variation.
