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: Die Adjektiv-Adverb-Abgrenzung im Deutschen [Adjective-Adverb-Demarcation in German]
Subtitle: Zu grundlegenden Problemen der Wortartenforschung
Written By: Claudia Telschow
Series Title: De Gruyter Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 299

The demarcation between adjectives and adverbs has been a matter of ongoing controversy in German linguistics. This book starts by presenting traditional options for categorizing words such as schnell [quick/ly] and sofort [immediate/ly]. Building on this history, it proposes a model of parts of speech that integrates lexicography and word formation research to include adjective-adverb connections in addition to strict categorization.
