Whilst we might choose our words carefully, we rarely think about the origins behind the many phrases, place names and expressions we use everyday. Yet, behind these words lies a fascinating story, steeped in the weird and wonderful history and traditions of everyday life. From hundreds of commonplace and more quirky terms, to names of streets, cities and public houses, this fascinating and fun book answers the questions you've always had about the wonderful language we all use, yet seldom think about.So if it's all Greek to you and seems like hocus pocus, for Pete's sake don't be left on tenderhooks, have a gander at this idiosyncractic tome. Make no bones about it - it's the bee's knees!
