Publisher's Description

ENTER A GALLERY OF WIT AND WHIMSY
As the largest and most dynamic collection of words ever assembled, the English language continues to expand. But as hundreds of new words are added annually, older ones are sacrificed. Now from the author of Forgotten English comes a collection of fascinating archaic words and phrases, providing an enticing glimpse into the past. With beguiling period illustrations, The Word Museum offers up the marvelous oddities and peculiar enchantments of old and unusual words.

Editorial Reviews

Richard Lederer author of Crazy English Through the wabe of The Word Museum gyre and gimble some of the most abracadabrant creations of our word-bethumped English language. You'll be a more verbivorous human being after you take this tour.
Barbara Wallraff author of Word Court What fun The Word Museum is. It is a bouffage -- an absolute yeepsen -- for word-peckers, and that's no scaum.
Justin Kaplan and Anne Bernays authors of The Language of Names It's an absolutely delicious book, a ten-course banquet for anyone with an appetite for words, dictionary games, and just plain fun.
