Description

From the deliberately confusing to the downright vague, we all come across language that either seems meaningless or that makes our heads spin. Weasel Words is a demystification of those words and phrases used to bewilder, befuddle and confuse us, from the estate agent’s "bijou" to the politician’s more sinister "waterboarding." Using contemporary examples, this book sets out those words we find confusing, explains what each word actually means and examines why these words are used the way they are.show more
