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.

Title: Translation Studies
Edited By: Mona Baker
Series Title: Critical Concepts in Linguistics

Translation Studies has emerged as a thriving interdisciplinary and
international area of scholarship. Its rapid growth has been accompanied by
diverse forms of translation research and commentary, most falling within,
or crossing, traditional academic disciplines such as linguistics, literary
criticism, philosophy, anthropology, and, more recently, cultural studies.

This new four-volume collection from Routledge brings together foundational
and more recent, cutting-edge contributions to the field. The collection is
both retrospective and forward-looking, making sense of the past as well as
providing pointers towards the future.

Fully indexed and with a comprehensive introduction, Translation Studies is
an essential work of reference for use by both scholar and student as a
vital one-stop research resource.
