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: Introduction to Classical Armenian
Written By: Jean-François R. Mondon
Series Title: LINCOM Student Grammars 04

This is an introductory textbook for Classical Armenian consisting of 20 graded chapters, an introduction focusing on the phonetics of the language, a grammatical appendix, and a glossary. Each of the 20 chapters deals with one specific grammatical topic with explanations using English examples as a point of contrast with the Armenian forms. From chapter 3 on every chapter ends with an unedited excerpt from the Armenian Bible, specifically from the four Gospels. The length of the excerpts naturally gets longer as the learner progresses through the book and all excerpts are well-known stories, such as the story of John the Baptist and the story of the Prodigal Son. The grammatical appendix discusses eight extra grammatical topics which occur rarely enough to be excluded from the main part of the book. Finally a glossary contains all the words from the readings in chapters 3 through 20.
