The story of words and their origins presents a vast amount of information. It is not, however, either a history or a textbook. The material, while strictly factual, is as entertaining as fiction.

Here the reader will find the life stories of thousands of words - how, when and where they originated, how their meanings changed and developed through the centuries, and many other facts that give a better understanding of the English language as it is today.
