All In A Word: 100 Delightful Excursions into the Uses and Abuses of Words [Secure eReader]
eBook by Vivian Cook

eBook Category: Reference
eBook Description: 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. From polite words to crass words, from p-c words to Shakespeare�s words, from food and wine words to jazz and drug words�the book is an exciting exploration into the abundance and variety of words.
