Etymologicon

Etymologicon

Etymologicon

THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER



`Witty and erudite ... stuffed with the kind of arcane information that nobody strictly needs to know, but which is a pleasure to learn nonetheless.' Nick Duerden, Independent



`Particularly good ... Forsyth takes words and draws us into their, and our, murky history' William Leith, Evening Standard



The Etymologicon is an occasionally ribald, frequently witty and unerringly erudite guided tour of the secret labyrinth that lurks beneath the English language.



What is the actual connection between disgruntled and gruntled? What links church organs to organised crime, California to the Caliphate, or brackets to codpieces?



Mark Forsyth's riotous celebration of the idiosyncratic and sometimes absurd connections between words isa classic of its kind: a mine of fascinating information and a must-read for word-lovers everywhere.
