Abstract:

Words are all around us - we use them every day to communicate our
joys, fears, hopes, opinions, wishes and demands - but we don't often
think about them too deeply. In this highly accessible introduction to
English words, the reader will discover what the study of words can
tell them about the extraordinary richness and complexity of our daily
vocabulary and about the nature of language in general.

Assuming no prior knowledge of linguistics, the book covers a wide
range of topics including the structure of words, the meaning of
words, how their spelling relates to pronunciation, how new words are
manufactured or imported from other languages, and how the meaning of
words changes with the passage of time. It also investigates how the
mind deals with words by highlighting the amazing intellectual feat
performed routinely when the right word is retrieved from the mental
dictionary. This revised and expanded second edition brings the study
of words right up to date with coverage of text messagin
