Product Description

The author frolics through the logic-boggling byways of our language, discovering the names for phobias you didn't know you could have, the longest words in our dictionaries, and the shortest sentence containing every letter in the alphabet. In this revised and expanded edition, Lederer adds a giggly gaggle of linguistic absurdities and unveils new chapters on misnomers, retronyms, and redundancies.
