Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Do you know why. .a mortgage is literally a death pledge? .why guns have girls' names? .why salt is related to soldier? You're about to find out. The Etymologicon (e-t?-'m -l -ji-k n) is: *Witty (wi-te): Full of clever humor *Erudite (er-?-dit): Showing knowledge *Ribald (ri-b?ld): Crude, offensive The Etymologicon is a completely unauthorized guide to the strange underpinnings of the English language. It explains: how you get from gruntled to disgruntled; why you are absolutely right to believe that your meager salary barely covers money for salt; how the biggest chain of coffee shops in the world (hint: Seattle) connects to whaling in Nantucket; and what precisely the Rolling Stones have to do with gardening.
