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.

Book Information


Title: Valenzgrammatik des Deutschen [German Valency Grammar]
Subtitle: Eine Einführung
Written By: Klaus Welke
Series Title: De Gruyter Studium

Valency grammar assumes that words, e.g. verbs, have a valency that
determines the design of the construction - in the case of verbs the
construction of the sentence. Construction grammar, a current direction
of grammar research, does not start from the word and go to the
sentence (to the construction), but as a matter of principle always starts
from the construction. Both approaches are presented together in this
book to show how word and construction determine each other
reciprocally and how creative language usage develops from this
reciprocal relationship.
