This is a dictionary like no other. It contains words and definitions, yes, but these are words, REAL words you don't hear every day; wonderful words to spice up your vocabulary and make your word-loving friends sit up and pay attention!
I have given out five copies of this book to friends and fellow word-fans over the years, and am always on the lookout for used copies to be given to a good home. Make room on your shelf ... this book is a keeper!

An accidentally discovered, but most excellent and rather amusing book. A lot of the words not able to be used on the Scrabble board, as they're too long, although very interesting !! But a book highly to be recommended for other fellow "wordsmiths" like myself, nevertheless !!

favorite book of all time
Words are magic and so is this book. Great for gifts. Great for bathroom reading. Great to hook the mind of a child.
