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: Schreibfähigkeit und Mehrsprachigkeit [Written Language Skills and Multilingualism]
Written By: Inger Petersen
Series Title: De Gruyter DaZ-Forschung [DaZ-For] 5

There has been relatively little previous research on the written language skills of older children with German as their second language. This study uses the theoretical perspective of written language development research to explore the question of whether the syntactic written language skills of monolingual high school and college students differ consistently from those of multilingual students.
