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: To depict an authentic instance of blind manuscript review that created questions regarding the extent to which the peer review process is ‘peerless’ (de Beaugrande 2004), in this chapter I explore referee comments as well as journal editor correspondence on a manuscript that I submitted to a leading journal in the area of applied linguistics and language education.
