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: Aspects of Cognitive Ethnolinguistics
Written By: Jerzy Bartmiński
Edited By: Joerg Zinken
Series Title: Advances in Cognitive Linguistics

The book provides an introduction into a highly developed, coherent, and
extensively tested cognitive linguistic approach to lexical semantics,
which is not currently accessible to readers of English. This makes the
book important to researchers and students in lexical semantics, in
Cognitive Linguistics and beyond. It also strengthens the Cognitive
Linguistics enterprise in general, by showing that the main tenets of this
approach are not an incidental historical development in a particular
corner of the world, but rather are arrived at by scholars working in
hugely different contexts independently of each other. The book should
therefore have an appeal to all researchers in Cognitive Linguistics.
Furthermore, the book constitutes a contribution to the intellectual
exchange between international academic discourses that mostly develop
independently of each other – an exchange that has often provided major
impetus for scientific development, as illustrated by the influence of the
belated translations of works by Bakhtin, Lotman, Vygotsky, and Luria,
among others.
