This interesting look into the English language will not be for everyone. I think to read and enjoy this book you already have to have an interest in language how it is formed and why it is the way it is.

Why do the US spell colour without the U. Why are there so many inconsistances in our language. How can one word mean so different things and have you ever tried to explain what is means. Then this book is for you.
