In a Word

In a Word 750 Words and Their Fascinating Stories and Origins Rosalie Baker

What's in a word? A lot, as IN A WORD tells us! Words travel through time and evolve -taking on new characteristics, new meanings, and providing fascinating tales of people, places, and times long ago. Each entry of IN A WORD tells its tale in a witty short-story style, often accompanied by fun illustrations.Though several of the entries in the book provide the kind of linguistic details found in the finest dictionaries, IN A WORD's lively, anecdotal style makes it more entertaining than a traditional reference book. It's a perfect addition to any family home, or as a gift.The book also comes with a language chart and index. With an introduction by a linguistics scholar.
