    DescriptionAgharoo - A larger-than-life sneeze in a Bollywood comedy, used as the basis for a dance routine. Toames pl - The first furtive touching of toes in bed after a severe row with your partner. Ruswarp - To deliberately write a word unclearly when you don't know how to spell it. Loudwater - A child's strongly held opinion, copied word for word from its parents. Inverness - The loneliness of garden chairs in winter. For more than a decade John Lloyd and Jon Canter have been collecting together these definitions, written by them and many other friends of Douglas Adams, who co-write the original bestseller The Meaning of Liff back in 1983. Each definition is based on a place name. Always funny, often profound, and entirely unique, this is the essential book for anyone who faces the minor challenges of everyday life, and has been at a loss for words for how to express them.
