Word Museum by Jeffrey Kacirk
Book DescriptionAs 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. The WORD MUSEUM is a collection of fascinating archaic words and phrases, providing an enticing glimpse nto the past. With its beguiling period illustrations, THE WORD MUSEUM ranges from engaging titbits of everyday life to the extraordinary. This fascinating new book differs from a dictionary in that most of its entries are unfamiliar, and even the familiar looking ones are rich with unexpected twists.
