Books on Words and Language


I think I need a collective noun for a group of books on this subject. Any suggestions?

Here are some of the currently available titles: The Secret Life of Pronouns, The Pun Also Rises, Preposterous Proverbs, The Story of English in 100 Words and from the TV show, Letters and Numbers.

All of the above are fascinating but for me the pick of the bunch is Planet Word. Written by J. P. Davidson this engrossing book accompanies a forthcoming BBC TV series and takes us around the globe and from the earliest grunts to Twitter and beyond. It is a book which can be read from cover to cover or dipped into at random. Either way it will delight the reader.

Planet Word is in hardback with a recommended price of $45 – our discount price is $36! We like to offer great service and great value.
