The dot above the letter "i" is called a "tittle." No English-language word rhymes with "silver." The word "ampersand" is a corruption of the phrase "and, per se, and." Dr. Seuss coined the term "nerd." That's just a little taste of the smorgasbord of linguistic treats presented in The Weird World of Words. You'll also find the winning national spelling bee words for the past several decades, the surprising origins of all kinds of expressions and phrases, a collection of helpful mnemonics, a smattering of hilarious mondegreenes...all kinds of fun and fascinating wordplay for logophiles and language-lovers!
