a fanscinating wrok of unusual, obscure and pereposterous words. 1000's of the weirdest words in the English language but the definition of each is clear and direct. Every entry in the book even the ost ludicrous has been accepted as a formal legitimate English wrod by at least one major dictionary.
Humorous in parts and intensely interesting. If you like words you'll love this!
