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.

Linguistic LingField(s):  Psycholinguistics

Query:   Dear all,

We invite your participation in a survey through which we hope to obtain
ratings on several English verb characteristics, such as imageability and
action-relatedness. Many known lexical databases have missing values for
the verbs of our interest, so we aim to compile a representative data set
for use in psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic studies. Results of the
verb ratings will be made public via our website and announced on Linguist

The survey is anonymous and should take about 10 minutes to complete. Your
participation is much appreciated!
