The Great Eskimo Vocabulary Hoax

The Great Eskimo Vocabulary Hoax And Other Irreverent Essays on the Study of Language Geoffrey K. Pullum

How reliable are all those stories about the number of Eskimo words for snow? How can lamps, flags, and parrots be libelous? These and many other odd questions are typical topics in this collection of essays that present and occasionally zany, often wry, but always fascinating look at language and the people who study it.
