Dyslexia is a difficulty with words, and it is often misunderstood and sometimes unrecognised. If dyslexia remains undetected, it can affect a child's confidence and educational achievements.This charming, beautifully designed book aims to empower children with dyslexia to recognise and understand their own difficulties and by sharing it with friends and family help them to understand too. It is a picture book for an adult to share with a young child but the use of the visual metaphor (wool and knitting being compared to words and writing) minimizes the need for words and adds to its appeal.

101 Ways To Swear In English

Welcome to my book of 101 Ways to Swear in English. An analytically and sometimes meta-analytically study of how we the English swear. Where those words originated from and why. Their origins and rise to fame and how we use them now, sometimes years later. It occurred to me one day, that I spend my working week here in Sao Paulo, Brazil teaching students how to speak English in our school from books that are written and produced in the United Kingdom and teaching those students how to speak with our so called pure and sexy British accent. Of course, I am English and so firmly believe that "English English" is far superior to any other English spoken around the world. After all it's the mother tongue right? This book is humorous whilst been completely honest. If you are offended by bad language then switch over now. Bad language is part of our lives. This book is an attempt to teach strangers to our shores how to use the colored words in our language. As well as a satirical look at ourselves.

Knotted Tongues

A former stutterer, Benson Bobrick here offers his perspective on the condition as well as an interesting history of how physicians have treated it. Stuttering, or stammering (the terms are interchangeable clinically), occurs four times more frequently in males and ranges from mild hesitation in speech to severe disability. Hot irons were applied to stutterers' lips in the Middle Ages, and in the mid-19th century, risky tongue operations were performed in failed attempts to effect a cure. Bobrick discusses famous stutterers Charles Darwin, Henry James, Winston Churchill, and Jimmy Stewart, and he describes the adverse impact of their condition on their lives. In this century, psychological trauma has often been cited as the cause of stuttering, but recent evidence points to a genetic disorder involving a disturbed auditory function. Therapeutic practices differ, but the author credits a voice feedback system with bringing his condition under control.

D.M. Hooley has now reexamined Persius in light of developments in contemporary critical thinking, particularly that which builds upon classical imitation theories. Addressing each of the six Satires as well as the introductory "Choliambics," Hooley contends that one of the most conspicuous features of Persius' verse, its allusiveness, is a key to this desiderated view. The long-recognized, exceptionally high frequency of imitations of and allusions to the works of Horace and others can be seen not as a mark of artistic immaturity but as a technique intended to engage other voices in the expression of a poem's meaning. Seen as an aspect of structural and thematic strategy, the pattern of Persius' engagement with the words of other poets reveals a remarkable and hitherto unregarded coherence in the Satires.
