Publisher's Description

This book explores the fascinating heritage of the English language - the deriving of words from the names of people. Eponyms are the people who give their names to words. Most eponymous words derive from a person's surname: boycott, from the Irish landlord Captain Charles Cunningham Boycott, dahlia, from the Swedish botanist Anders Dahl, the sousaphone, from the American bandmaster John Philip Sousa, and volt, from the Italian physicist Count Alessandro Volta. The dictionary contains about 1000 entries.
