Dr Johnson's Reliquary of Rediscovered Words, Hardback Book

Dr Johnson's Reliquary of Rediscovered Words Hardback


In these pages you will discover words you never knew existed, and rediscover many that you had forgotten or had given up all hope of ever seeing again. If the amoindering of our language by fifish chuffs leads you to fleer and the infandous overslipping of orthoepy makes you feel wamble, this is most certainly the book for you. Prepare to fike, gane and gaure as Dr Johnson certiorates, carrying carotic catachresis to new heights, and providing all lovers of leguleian lexicographical detail with a rich feast of mullock, cultch and peltry.
