The Best Words: More Than 200 of the Most Excellent, Most Desirable, Most Suitable, Most Satisfying Words

The Best Words: More Than 200 of the Most Excellent, Most Desirable, Most Suitable, Most Satisfying Words Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Highlighting the cream of the crop in the English language, this zany compilation showcases more than 200 exceptional words. Underscoring select terms for their definitions, pronunciations, or both, this exploration resurrects a medley of overlooked examples while also providing instances of their uses in contemporary speech. Rather than presenting an array of obscure words that are too impractical for everyday use, this consideration includes choice expressions that can actually be used in speaking and writing. Concluding with 150 challenging quiz questions to test comprehension, this miscellany also features sidebars with further explanation, derivations, and literary asides, making it ideal for students, writers, grammarians, and word lovers alike.
