On Words: Insights into How Our Words Work-And Dont by Paula LaRocque

From pesky pronouns and preferred pronunciations to the common media mistakes that mar the language, this offbeat romp provides humor and insight into the aspects and words of the English language that make it come to life. Five sections, each dealing with a broad area of language and word usage, present interesting etymologies, the effects words have on our lives, and how language reflects ones personality. Word and language lovers will take delight in the Words and the Calendar section, which analyzes the many words relating to days, months, and time in general. The Words on Words section will also have readers laughing at the hilarious chapter on the many words and metaphors encompassing the word foot, from put your foot in your mouth to footlights.
