Product description

Review

Uncommon English words to enrich your vocabulary (India Today, 7 July 2003)

Review

"Anu and Stuti Garg?s many readers await their A Word A Day rations hungrily. Now at last here′s a feast for them and other verbivores. Eat up!" Barbara Wallraff, senior editor at The Atlantic Monthly and authors of Word Court

"AWADies will be familiar with Anu and Stuti Garg?s refreshing approach to words: words are fun and they have fascinating histories. The people who use them have curious stories to tell too, and this collection incorporates some of the correspondence received by the editors at the AWAD site, from advice on how to outsmart your opponent in a duel (or even a truel), to a cluster of your favorite mondegreens." John Simpson, Chief Editor, Oxford English Dictionary

"A banquet of words! Feast and be nourished!" Richard Lederer, author of The Miracle of Language
