Ever wondered who invented the word "nerd"? Or why grocers insist on putting apostrophes where they shouldn't be? Did you know there's a name for the thing kids do when they call nostrils "snotrils" (and did you know that birds used to be called brids?) This wonderful book, the distillation of five years of blogging and newsletter writing by Ken Grace, is a guided tour through the weird and wonderful history, use and abuse of the magnificent edifice we call the English language.
