Product description

Review

A fascinating book for anyone interested in the English language. (Writing Magazine)

This book is as engrossing...as it is enlightening...erudite and delightful work. (Christopher Hirst, The Independent)

I enjoyed picking up this chattily written dictionary. (Dot Wordsworth, Spectator)

It is an ideal stocking filler...a delightful cornucopia of derivations. (Crawford Gillian, East Anglian Daily Times)
