The Cabinet of Linguistic Curiosities

From the quaaltagh (the first person one meets on New Year’s Day) to doniferous (an adjective for carrying a gift), via dorbellists, word-grubbers and theics: a splendidly archaic word for every day of the year. Fascinating etymological origins, entertaining linguistic trivia, and an erudite exploration of the web of connections within the English language. Written with humour and a light touch that belies the depth of research contained: a gift for wordsmiths and lovers of language.

Hardback, 376 pages.
8 ¾" x 5 ½".
£14.99
