Get relief - Creative Relief!
Creative Relief coloring books are for kids, grown-ups and anyone else in need of coloring therapy. Even if you aren't stressed and just need a little color in your life, Creative Relief coloring books offer a variety of designs and images to color, ranging from simple open patterns to intricate and puzzling coloring challenges.
Features you get in Creative Relief coloring books:
A matte-finish coverto reduce visibility of exterior scratches and greasy fingerprints. Coloring frequently involves snacking. No judging.
A low page count per book and a creased cover make it easier to open the book flat for coloring.
White interior paper to let the true hue of the colors you choose fill the page. Baby pink shouldn't look like baby puke.
60# interior paper weight, not traditional coloring book pulp/newspaper. This provides a stronger surface for crayons and colored pencils. However, some markers and paint may bleed through.
Single-sided pages no pictures on the back (and NEW- a blackened page back) means no damage to the next piece of art from bleed through. This also allows for art to be removed (for framing, making paper airplanes, lining the bird cage, whatever) without missing-out on the next art piece.
No double page layouts and space from the interior binding so the whole picture can easily be colored.
A blank testing page specifically for testing your coloring mediums and hues before applying. No more test slashes and dots on the page of your art!
A bleed through page to use with mediums like markers and paint that may bleed.
Fixed Expressions And Idioms In English
This is a text-based study of fixed expressions, or idioms. Rosamund Moon's central argument is that fixed expressions can only be fully understood if they are considered together with the texts in which they occur. She provides an overview of this area of lexis in current English. Writing from a lexicologicalrather than a computationalpoint of view, she gives a detailed, descriptivist account of the findings of research into several thousand fixed expressions and
idioms, as evidenced in the corpus text, including information about frequencies, syntax, lexical forms and variations, and metaphoricality. The author argues that examination of corpus text raises
questions about many received ideas on fixed expressions and idioms, and suggests that new or revised use-centred models are required. Later chapters of the book demonstrate the ideological and discoursal significance of idioms, paying particular attention to the ways in which they convey evaluations and have roles with respect to the information structure and cohesion of texts.

Series Editors: Richard W. Bailey, Noel Osselton, and Gabriele Stein Oxford Studies in Lexicography and Lexicology provides a forum for the publication of substantial scholarly works
on all issues of interest to lexicographers, lexicologists, and dictionary users. It is concerned with the theory and history of lexicography, lexicological theory, and related topics such as terminology, and computer applications in lexicography. It focuses attention too on the purposes for which dictionaries are compiled, on their uses, and on their reception and role in society today and in the past.
