Description
We asked Roget himself what he thought of Talk Wordy To Me, and he gushed that it’s “incredible, magnificent, wonderful, marvelous, spectacular, astonishing, awe-inspiring, tremen…” Then we cut him off because there’s only so much room to tell you about all the great articles you’ll find in this e-book about word and phrase origins, anagrams, palindromes, puns, jargon, tongue twisters, and the (unintentionally) naughtiest typos ever typed. What else is in here? Lots! A smorgasbord! A cornucopia! A plethora! Myriad! So expand your vocabulary with…

 

• How txting b changin langage lol
• The epic story of epic words that are losing their luster (like “epic”)
• A pop music anagram quiz

• The world’s wordiest novelist

• Presidential misspeaks that spawned new words

• Hilarious headstones from around the world

• Words and phrases that are much older than you’d think (like “politically correct” and “truthiness”)
• Peter Mark Roget’s obsessive-compulsive quest to create his famous thesaurus
• What irony isn’t
• Trivia, with a catch—all answers contain poo

And much, much more!
