A Word a Day
A Romp Through Some of the Most Unusual and Intriguing Words in English

Taschenbuch: 224 Seiten
Verlag: John Wiley & Sons Inc (12. November 2002)
Sprache: Englisch


This is a romp through more than 250 obscure, abstruse, wacky, and wonderful words from the founders of the world's no. 1 word-lovers' Web site. Written by the founders of the wildly popular "A Word A Day" Web site and daily e-mail (500,000 subscribers, worldwide), this collection of unusual, obscure, and exotic English words is a must-have for writers, scholars, crossword puzzlers, and word buffs of every ilk. Like their e-mails, the book is organized around weekly themes and offers readers a different word for each day of the week in categories ranging from "Portmanteaux" to "Words That Make Spell-Checker Ineffective." Each entry includes a concise definition, etymology, and usage example, and many entries feature fascinating and amusing commentaries by A.W.A.D. subscribers and the authors. Representing fifty-five weeks worth of words, the 273 words compiled in "A Word A Day" includes some of the most popular weekly themes that have appeared on the Web site since its founding in 1994.
