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 Directions in Colour Studies
Edited By: Carole P. Biggam
Carole A. Hough
Christian J. Kay
David R. Simmo

Colour studies attracts an increasingly wide range of scholars from across the
academic world. Contributions to the present volume offer a broad perspective
on the field, ranging from studies of individual languages through papers on art,
architecture and heraldry to psychological examinations of aspects of colour
categorization, perception and preference. The chapters have been developed
from papers and posters presented at a conference on Progress in Colour
Studies (PICS08) held at the University of Glasgow. The volume both updates
research reported at the earlier PICS04 conference (published by Benjamins in
2006 as "Progress in Colour Studies" volumes 1 and 2), and introduces new and
exciting topics and developments in colour research. In order to make the
articles maximally accessible to a multidisciplinary readership, each of the six
sections following the initial theoretical papers begins with a short preface
describing and drawing together the themes of the chapters within that section.
There are seventeen colour illustrations.
