A new cover look for the 5th anniversary of Mark Forsyth's brilliant Sunday Times Number One bestseller.

What is the actual connection between disgruntled and gruntled? What links church organs to organised crime, California to the Caliphate, or brackets to codpieces?

The Etymologicon is all about the strange connections between words. It's an occasionally ribald, frequently witty and unerringly erudite guided tour of the secret labyrinth that lurks beneath the English language, taking in monks and monkeys, film buffs and buffaloes, and explaining precisely what the Rolling Stones have to do with gardening.

It's become a classic of writing about the English language. If you're interested in etymology, you need to have read this book!
