Description

Did you know that 'Almost' is the longest word in the English language with all of its letters in alphabetical order ? Or that 'Stewardesses' is the longest word you can type solely with your left hand? Or that fireflies aren't actually flies, they're beetles? From information about words and their uses, to useful lists of things you never knew had names, palindromes, famous lines from literature and film, bizarre test answers and more, The Weird World of Words is bursting with truly oddball facts about words and language - and will have you hooked from the very first page.
