Description

In a humorous and thoughtful way, this discussion explores English-language usage, including the traditional linguistic traps of mixed metaphors and mispronunciation, new words and old cliches, euphemisms, tautologies, and jargon. It also exposes the latest blunders in serially offending professions such as politics, business, and law. From sports talk to silly signs and from food speak to fancy-pants job titles, this is the ideal gift for wordsmiths and lovers of word reference books.
