Biting the Wax Tadpole: Confessions of a Language Fanatic

by

Grammar fanatic Little shares all of the irresistible irregular verbs and evolutionary quirks that give languages their character. The fully illustrated book also includes funny, informative sidebars about classic cases of mistranslation (the literal translation of Coca-Cola into Chinese is bite the wax tadpole).
