Descriere

We adapt words from other languages, from slang, from developments in science, literature and art. Learn the advantages of having your own signature word; why the lifts in the House of Commons have posh accents; and discover the discreet art of the loopemism. Witty and utterly delightful, The Last Word will tease, tickle and tantalise lovers of all things lexical.
