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."

New from Cambridge University Press!


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: Language of New Media Design
Subtitle: Theory and Practice
Written By: Radan Martinec
Theo van Leeuwen

The Language of New Media Design is an innovative new textbook presenting
methods on the design and analysis of a variety of non-linear texts, from
websites to CD-Roms. Integrating theory and practice, the book explores a
range of models for analyzing and constructing multimedia products. For
each model the authors outline the theoretical background and demonstrate
usage from students' coursework, commonly available websites and other
multimedia products.

Assuming no prior knowledge, the book adopts an accessible approach to the
subject which has been trialled and tested on MA students at the London
College of Communication. Written by experienced authors, this textbook
will be an invaluable resource for students and teachers of new media
design, information technology, linguistics and semiotics.
