All In a Word: 100 Delightful Excursions into the Uses and Abuses of Words
Publisher: Melville House
Delve into the hidden nature of words:
An irresistible mix of information, curiosity, and fun
Linguist Vivian Cook takes us on a brilliant series of excursions into the history and meaning of words: How do we learn words as a child? How are words born, and why do they die? Why do some never get spoken, and others never written? Each chapter is charmingly illustrated—and accompanied by a rich assortment of games, lists, puzzles, and quotes.
