Description

A smorgasbord of surprising, obscure, and exotic words

In this delightful encore to the national bestseller A Word A Day, Anu Garg, the founder of the wildly popular A Word A Day Web site (wordsmith.org), presents an all-new collection of unusual, intriguing words and real-life anecdotes that will thrill writers, scholars, and word buffs everywhere. Another Word A Day celebrates the English language in all its quirkiness, grandeur, and fun, and features new chapters ranging from ""Words Formed Erroneously"" and ""Red-Herring Words"" to ""Kangaroo Words,"" ""Discover the Theme,"" and ""What Does That Company Name Mean?"" In them, you'll find a treasure trove of curious and compelling words, including agelast, dragoman, mittimus, nyctalopia, quacksalver, scission, tattersall, and zugzwang. Each entry includes a concise definition, etymology, and usage example, interspersed with illuminating quotations.

Praise for a word a day

""Anu Garg's many readers await their A Word A Day rations hungrily. Now at last here's a feast for them and other verbivores. Eat up!""
--Barbara Wallraff, Senior Editor at The Atlantic Monthly and author of Word Court

""AWADies will be familiar with Anu Garg's refreshing approach to words: words are fun and they have fascinating histories.""
--John Simpson, Chief Editor, Oxford English Dictionary
