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: New Perspectives in Greek Linguistics
Edited By: Nikolaos Lavidas
Elissavet Nouchoutidou
Marietta Sionti

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

"New Perspectives in Greek Linguistics" is a selection of papers presenting
some of the ongoing research in Greek Linguistics. The contributions in
this volume, which have their origin in the 4th Athens Postgraduate
Conference in Linguistics, refer to various theoretical frameworks and
cover a wide range of topics (from phonology of dialects to acquisition of
syntax); however, they share the common reference to Greek and Theoretical
Linguistics. The second common feature is a tendency to investigate already
known problems using new methods, considering different factors from
previous research or introducing innovative ideas. The volume is dedicated
to Professor Gaberell Drachman and Professor Angeliki Malikouti-Drachman as
a small token of gratitude for their ceaseless presence and their
contribution to Theoretical Linguistics, to Greek Linguistics and to
postgraduate studies in Linguistics in Greece.

This volume is of particular interest to linguists working on various areas
of Greek Linguistics, especially those who would like to keep up with
ongoing research. It presents an opportunity to see the application of
linguistic theory in Greek and the current comparative research.
