What do you call clothes kept in the cupboard for years in the vain hope you'll fit into them once more? What's the name of the wild dance, first forward then backward, performed by standing passengers when a bus comes to a sudden halt? And what do you call the practice of following a conversation in order to spot the moment when you can jump in and make it all about yourself? tHE DAG'S DICtIONARY is a book about words that should exist - but don't. With nearly 400 freshly minted words, and based on the hit ABC radio game, tHE DAG'S DICtIONARY is a hilarious trip into the delicious oddities of human behaviour. PS: the clothes are 'Hope Couture', the dance is a 'Bussa Nova', and the conversational hijacking is, of course, an 'I-jacking'.
