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.

Abstract: Karim Murji and John Solomos (eds.), Racialization: Studies in theory and practice. New York: Oxford University Press, 2005. Pp. 307.

The 13 papers in this edited volume, written by noted scholars of race and ethnicity (mainly sociologists) from the United States and United Kingdom, center on racialization – the "processes by which racial meanings are attached to particular issues" (p. 3). In their introduction, Murji and Solomos consider the term's origins and evolution and briefly review the development of race theory.
