Weeds in the Garden of Words: Further observations of the tangled histor y of the English language by Kate Burridge

People who love English - the way words are used and put together to create meaning; the arcane rules and infuriating exceptions; the vital, living history of the way the language has changed through the centuries to create a richness and depth that exceeds that of many other languages - are often very passionate about how it is used and how it is changing and about all its little tricky eccentricities Weeds in the Garden of Words is the perfect book for people who love English. Professor Kate Burridge's book is approachable, entertaining and fun - designed to browse through and find oneself hooked by fascinating pieces on such topics as why verbs move to nouns and vice versa, why pronunciation may differ from place to place, why regionalisms develop and the creative way of slang and jargon. Weeds in the Garden of Words is filled with the joys of the eccentric, unruly, rich and complex language that is English.
