EVERYMAN’S CLASSICAL DICTIONARY 800 BC to AD337
Warrington, John
J. M. Dent & Sons London 1965 Revised Edition
 Hardcover Dustjacket has wear at corners and spine ends, previous owners name on front endpaper, otherwise a very good copy in very good dustjacket. Everyman's Classical Dictionary is an entirely new work, supplanting Smith's Smaller Classical Dictionary. Considerations of space and the convenience of students suggested that the term 'classical' should cover a period beginning with the most commonly accepted date of Homer (late eighth century B. C. ) and ending with the death of Constantine (A. D. 337). The same considerations led the editor to employ the term as having reference to pagan Greece and Rome. The early history of the Church falls outside the scope of this work; and articles on persons, places, institutions and events of other civilizations-Egyptian, Persian and so forth-are supplied only when their subject-matter has a direct and contemporary bearing upon Greek and Roman history, literature, etc. Special attention has been given to geographical and topographical articles, for the benefit of readers who may take the book on their travels. Hundreds of articles are here contributed on subjects not mentioned in the old Dictionary. There is an extensive classified bibliography of general works, and many articles are followed by a list of books dealing with the particular subject. The principal legends, eg. The Atreids, Theban Legend, Jason and Medea-are told as continuous stories, with cross-references from the characters concerned. Care has been taken to cross-reference the entire work so as to give maximum help to the reader without needless repetition. ; xxxviii, 537 pages Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket

The Adventure of English - The Biography of a Language - 500AD to 2000
Melvyn Bragg,
ISBN: 0340829931
Sceptre, Great Britain, 2003. 
  Softcover. Near Fine Condition/. . Illustrated. English is the collective work of millions of people throughout the ages. It is democratic, ever-changing and ingenious in its assimilation of other cultures.

Yet it was very nearly wiped out in its early years. In this book Melvyn Bragg shows us the remarkable story of the English language; from its beginnings as a minor guttural Germanic dialect to its position today as a truly established global language. THE ADVENTURE OF ENGLISH is not only an enthralling story of power, religion and trade, but also the story of people, and how their day-to-day lives shaped and continue to change the extraordinary language that is English. 354 pages.

Word Watching - Field Notes From An Amateau Philologist
Julian Burnside,
ISBN: 1920769382
Scribe Publications, Australia, 2005. 
  Hardcover. Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. Reprint. We live in a torrent of words from radio and television, books and newspapers, and now from the internet. But, as Julian Burnside reminds us in this witty and erudite collection, words are both a source of pleasure and power, and can be deployed for good or for ill. Some of these essays explore curiosities in odd corners of the language simply to remind us of the extraordinary richness of the English language: we learn, for example, that the word pedigree refers to the shape of a stork's foot, and that halcyon recalls an early Greek love story. 234 pages.

Cliches and Coinages
Walter Redfern,
ISBN: 0631156917
Basil Blackwell, USA, 1989. 
 Hardcover Hardcover. Good Condition/Good. . This criss-cross study, the first of its kind, arranges a shotgun wedding between cliches and coinages - the old (that refuses to die), and new (that often quickly fades). Not such strange bedfellows, they jointly help to illuminate the running battle between the parasitic and the creative in our thought and language. Like puns, and against all defence-systems, they get everywhere. Cliches proliferate into proverbs, idioms, slogans, jargon, truisms, propaganda, racial stereotypes, rumour, education, kitsch. For their part, coinages permeate advertising, journalism, scientific terminology, poetry, schizophrenic language, acronyms, 'franglais'. Both purposeful and accidental neologisms (slips) are considered, with especial focus on blends. Coining is ambiguous: it embraces the mint-fresh and the forged. Just as neologisms feed mainly off fragments of existing words, so cliches can be recycled by being twisted to new purposes. The automatisms that beset us all can be subverted, or at least combatted. There are no automatic villians or heroes of this piece. A close analysis of plagiarism finds everyone guilty. Cliches are seen as essential social lubrication or balm, and coinages as a necessary counterweight to purism and linguistic refrigeration. Throughout, practice and theory in both areas are compared and contrasted, in the English, French and American traditions. Examples are taken from high culture, low life, and the level best where, of course, we all live. This text will be of interest to general readers and specialists in language studies in departments of French and English. 304 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Resonate - For People Who Need To Be Heard
Dr Louise Mahler,
ISBN: 9780670078905
Viking / Penguin, Australia, 2015. 
  Softcover. Very Good Condition/. . In Resonate Dr Louise Mahler, voice coach extraordinaire, demonstrates that your mind, body and voice are inextricably linked. By approaching voice through an understanding of the whole body, Louise explains how your state of mind determines the way you hold your body, how your feelings resonate through your voice and how this sequence ultimately influences the efficacy of your communication. She explains the most common ways people react to nerves or excitement, as well as how your listeners respond to your voice and gestures – and how to use these to communicate more powerfully. Whether you struggle to make a point at work or a school committee meeting; whether you're going for the next big job or trying to improve your performance in the one you have; or you simply want better ways to communicate, Resonate will show you how to tune in to your own vocal intelligence, identify the physical and mental blocks that are holding you back, and reclaim your authentic voice. With its practical exercises, inspiring real-life stories and insightful tips, this book will unlock your confidence and show you how to make your message resonate 192 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Hyperproof CSLI Lecture Notes No. 42
Barwise, Jon,
ISBN: 1881526119
Center for the Study of Language and Inf, Stanford, California, 1994. 
  Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Edition Unstated. Hyperproof is a system for learning the principles of analytical reasoning and proof construction, consisting of a text and software program on a 3.5 inch diskette. Unlike traditional treatments of first-order logic, Hyperproof combines graphical and sentential information, presenting a set of logical rules for integrating these different forms of information. This strategy allows students to focus on the information content of proofs, rather than the syntactic structure of sentences. Using Hyperproof the student learns to construct proofs of both consequence and nonconsequence using an intuitive proof system that extends the standard set of sentential rules to incorporate information represented graphically. Hyperproof is compatible with various natural-deduction-style proof systems, including the system used in the authors' Language of First-Order Logic. the book may have been read but shows no damage, and the diskette is still sealed at the rear of the book Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall. 254 pages.
