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."

New from Cambridge University Press!


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.


Call Deadline: 04-Mar-2013

Call Information:
Nominalizations and Corpus

Special issue of the Verbum journal
Guest Editors: Evelyne Jacquey and Marie Laurence Knittel

Nominalizations are an important research topic at the crossroad of morphology, syntax and semantics. For example, the question of the inheritance of verbal properties (aspect and argument structure) by deverbal event nominals has drawn the attention of many researchers. Other deverbal nouns (agents, patients, instruments, etc), deadjectival nominalizations, stative nouns and their characteristics, as well as result nominals also constitute important fields of research.
The aim of the Workshop 'Nominalisations et Corpus' (Nominalization and Corpus studies) is to contribute, by the means of corpus studies, to a better understanding of these phenomena.

Important dates:
- March 4th, 2013: Authors who want to submit an article are invited to send an abstract (2 pages including references, in French or in English) describing their publication project before March 4h, 2013. The abstract should not be programmatic. The methodology, purpose and main results that are going to be developed in the article must be clearly indicated.
- May 6th, 2013: Reception of the articles (first version). A style sheet will be provided to the authors. The articles length is 15-25 pages.
