Word Perfect: Etymological Entertainment Every Day

by Susie Dent

'Susie Dent is a national treasure' Richard Osman 'WORD PERFECT is a golden vaulted cave of fascinating and funny hidden gems' JO BRAND Welcome to a year of wonder with Susie Dent, lexicographer, logophile, and longtime queen of Countdown's Dictionary Corner. From the real Jack the Lad to the theatrically literal story behind stealing someone's thunder, from tartle (forgetting someone's name at the very moment you need it) to snaccident (the unintentional eating of an entire packet of biscuits), WORD PERFECT is a brilliant linguistic almanac full of unforgettable stories, fascinating facts, and surprising etymologies tied to every day of the year. You'll never be lost for words again.
