A new compendium of words by a little-known but infinitely-self-important, self-proclaimed aficianado, on why English is the greatest language.
An extraordinary book, giving seminal insights into such diverse matters as Amazons and aardvarks, and the mythical or legendary Eve (of Eden), Helen (of Troy), and Joan (of Arc ).
A mass of common and archaic words re-pronounced and/or re-defined, often quirky, sometimes risque, maybe even wise...
Of great importance is the clever Table of Contents – located conveniently for Americans near the beginning of the book – setting out the subjects of the book’s twenty-seven categories (which each begins with a short essay by the philologist).
Saying anything else, at this stage, would be entirely superfluous, and probably an insult.
