Description

Nunberg (linguistics, Stanford U.) does not spend much time on the romance of words or decrying the state of the language, but more often takes language as a jumping off point to see what words can reveal about other things, among them culture, war, politics, symbols, media, business, and technology. Many of the 65 essays began life as articles or radio commentaries. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)show more
