    JUST ONE PAGE !!! !!! !!!
     
    The key idea of this handbook is to introduce an innovative, practical and visual presentation of the English Language Tense system on one page only. This unique and distinctive grammar presentation on a vector line demonstrates all the major tense systems on the basis of a step-by-step approach, depending on the study level. Starting from the Elementary level, continued by the Pre-Intermediate level and finally, the Intermediate level – JUST ONE PAGE is divided into three levels and for each specific section, practical tips, instructions and guidelines are provided. No necessity to sit and read for several hours hundreds of pages of academic grammar theory. 
     
    The JUST ONE PAGE grammar system presents the most significant features of each tense, thus, 22 tenses in English Language grammar are depicted on a single page. It enables a learner to obtain the key knowledge quickly, based on understanding a tense practical application using “signal words” (which are called “time adverbs” in grammar books), rather than pure academic theory memorising and, finally, learn correct application of the Tense system in language practice. This systematic approach has proved to be effective and attractive for over 25 years and has helped numerous students to learn English grammar quickly, effectively and easily.

    Step right up for the Greatest Book on Earth! For more than 70 years, Clowns International—the oldest established clowning organization—has been painting the faces of its members on eggs. Each one is a record of a clown's unique identity, preserving the unwritten rule that no clown should copy another's look. This mesmerizing volume collects more than 150 of these portraits, from 1946 to the modern day, accompanied by short personal histories of many of the clowns. Here are Tricky Nicky, Taffy, Bobo, Sammy Sunshine, the legendary Emmett Kelly, and Jolly Jack, clowning since 1977 and still performing today with a penguin puppet named Biscuit. A treasure just like the eggs it enshrines, The Clown Egg Register is an extraordinary archive of images and lives of the men and women behind the make-up.

    What is a cultural error? What causes it? What are the consequences of such an error?
    
    This volume enables the reader to identify cultural errors and to understand how they are produced. Sometimes they come about because of the gap between the source culture and the target culture, on other occasions they are the result of the cultural inadequacies of the translator, or perhaps the ambiguity arises because of errors in the reception of the translated text. The meta-translational problem of the cultural error is explored in great detail in this book. The authors address the fundamental theoretical issues that underpin the term. The essays examine a variety of topics ranging from the deliberate political manipulation of cultural sources in Russia to the colonial translations at the heart of Edward FitzGerald’s famous translation The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám. Adopting a resolutely transdisciplinary approach, the seventeen contributors to this volume come from a variety of academic backgrounds in music, art, literature, and linguistics. They provide an innovative reading of a key term in translation studies today.
