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: Erzählen als Form – Formen des Erzählens [Narrative as Form – Form of Narrative]
Edited By: Friederike Kern
Miriam Morek
Sören Ohlhus
Series Title: De Gruyter Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 295

The articles in this volume provide an insight into the richness of narrative. In
the process they focus on two main areas: oral narrative as part of everyday
interaction and the acquisition of narrative abilities as part of more
comprehensive discursive competencies. From a linguistic perspective, the
variance of the narrative form also points to the esthetic dimensions of literary
narrative. The concept of this volume is derived from the work of Uta Quasthoff,
whose 65th birthday prompted its creation and publication.
