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: Formal Linguistics and the Teaching of Latin
Subtitle: Theoretical and Applied Perspectives in Comparative Grammar
Edited By: Renato Oniga
Rossella Iovino
Giuliana Giusti

This volume offers a coherent collection of 26 papers presented at an
international conference held in November 2010, exploring the latest
achievements of formal and comparative linguistics applied to the teaching of
Latin. The three sections (syntax and morphology, semantics and pragmatics,
history and theory of teaching) compare Latin with different ancient and modern
languages, aiming to represent grammar rules as the product of mental
processes. The book is addressed to linguists, teachers and students, who are
looking for new perspectives to update their approach to classical Latin.
