When I saw this book mentioned in a newspaper article recently, I thought it might be fun to have handy when my kids hilariously mispronounce words or use words in completely incorrect ways. Nope!

Believe the title: this is a DICTIONARY. With alphabetical lists of words, words, and more words. And that's it. Like any dictionary, it defines those words and shows how to properly pronounce them. Keep in mind, a high percentage of those words are ones you will never use in your lifetime. Wish this had been more of an entertaining discussion of "misunderstood/misused/mispronounced" words that are in very common use.

Was disappointed as expected more than a plain dictionary. Thought there would be some interesting information to go along with the words. Also thought that half the words listed as difficult, etc. were ordinary words. My daughter expressed the same feelings. Am sorry I bought the book and embrassed that I gave it as a Christmas present.

I had a paperback copy of this from several years ago. I picked it up recently and had forgot how easy it was to spend a little time reading it. Many of the words are ones no sane person would use but it's nice to read something new even if it is easily and properly forgotten. This book was shipped quick in better than advertised condition. For a few bucks or even a few bucks more, it's worth buying.

This will be great for my daughter going into Cryptology. Although, she will probably use the internet more, sometimes it's good to have a physical book for quick review.

Lots of info I never knew. However some pronunciations and grammar is still controversial.

This is nothing more than an average dictionary. I didn't find any words that I see commonly misused or mispronounced though we all know there are many.
