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: Research in Second Language Acquisition
Edited By: Jörg U. Keßler
Dagmar Keatinge
Series Title: Empirical Evidence across Languages

Research in Second Language Acquisition: Empirical Evidence Across
Languages provides an overview of current research within the
Processability Theory framework (Pienemann 1998; 2005). The articles in
this volume combine a more theoretical approach in order to further extend
the theory and studies utilizing PT to further investigate bilingual
language acquisition and language development in natural and institutional
settings. Taking these different aspects into consideration, this volume is
organised in two parts. Part 1 Second Language Processing: Contributions to
Theory Development contains a number of papers discussing the inclusion of
further theoretical aspects into PT, focusing on English as a second
language. In Part 2 Second Language Grammars across Languages, PT is
applied to a number of typologically different languages and contexts.
