The story of words, cultures, the OED and John Simpson, a word detective with thirty-seven years of dictionary experience and twenty years as Chief Editor of the world's most important dictionary

Bertrams Buyer's Notes:

With 37 years of dictionary experience and former Chief Editor of the world's most important dictionary, Simpson shows us the technical lexicography needed to understand a word and the careful poetry needed to construct its definition. Told with humour and charm, he includes the history and origin of words including, kangaroo, bicycle and hot-dog.
