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.

This four-volume dictionary is the first to register the specialist
terminology of dictionary research in about 5,600 headwords, 7,200
reference headwords and 50,000 headword equivalents in nine languages, and
thus forms the foundation for future lexicography. It is aimed at
academics, students and translators and is intended as an aid both to
reading and to composing and translating specialist texts. Apart from an
introduction to the subject in both English and German, it provides
bilingual definitions and contexts together with multilingual translations
of the headwords.
