The English language is an ever expanding blend of cultural ideas, flavors, and nuances. Author Henry I. Christ seeks to clarify and illuminate the English language's often ambiguous nomenclature in "Lexicon for Lovers of Language," the perfect literary guide to important language terms and expressions. Generously applied quotes from literary and popular notables colorfully illustrate concepts and usage. Concise, alphabetically arranged entries make "Lexicon for Lovers of Language" accessible to even the most average reader. Christ's treatment of his topic is scholarly, yet never stodgy. Infused with humor, historical background, and linguistic trivia, this handy volume makes entertaining bedside reading or a unique reference for writers, students, and everyday lovers of language.
