Product description

Discover the wonder of where words come from. This paperback dictionary gives a startling insight into the origins of the everyday language we use. It provides funny and engaging word histories; entries on especially curious, yucky or weird words; and a full thematic section on words from the worlds of food, fashion, dinosaur names, invented words and much more. Language expert John Ayto entertains all ages from eight to eighty in this informative and humorous reference, which builds vocabulary and engages the brain. Free downloadable learning resources, word games, puzzles and much more are available online.
