Words, Words, Words by David Crystal

Find in catalogLoved it! Anything by David Crystal is bound to be interesting, and Words Words Words is a great introduction to the world of linguistics–with a definite tilt towards the lover of English. This book is well-organized to allow for selective reading on topics of interest, but is concise enough to be a quick and easy read all the way through. The language is accessible enough that even older children and teenagers could enjoy it, but the subject matter is an intriguing topic for any age. I also appreciated the section on Becoming a Word Detective, for those who would like to pursue the exploration of language further. Highly recommended for anyone with even a passing interest in linguistics.
