Words, Words Words! Hardback
Part of the Routledge Revivals: The Selected Works of Eric Partridge series
First published in 1933 (this edition in 1939), this book sees Partridge introducing the reader to the eccentric lexicographers Wesley and Captain Grose.
In an entertaining way, the book jovially explores and discusses various words and phrases such as "bloody", euphemisms, the Devil's nicknames, various versions of slang, and familiar terms of address.
He does so with light-worn learning making the book of interest to a whole variety of readers.
