    From information about words and their uses, useful lists of things you never knew had names, palindromes and famous lines from literature and film, to bizarre test answers and much, much more, The Wonderful World of Words is bursting with truly oddball facts about words and language – and will have you hooked from the very first page.

    An essential guide for anyone interested in a humorous look at the world of language.

    A Fascinating Book!
    I have bought two of these books as recent presents. They offer a wealth of fascinating information about language, origin of words, sayings and more. My daughter and grand daughter are going to be delighted!
    I shall be either borrowing a copy to digest, later, or buying another copy for myself!
