About The Book
Pompous jargon pervades English these days, from corporate speak to silly legalisms. This lighthearted look at how English is being mangled reveals the underlying meaning, as well as the attitudes behind the meaning, of more than 1,000 buzzwords. Readers will discover that “learning opportunity” is a nice way of saying “mistake;” a “lawn mullet” is a yard that’s neatly trimmed out front but growing long in the back; and a “meanderthal” is someone who has a hard time getting to the point when telling a story. Accompanied by 15 illustrated cartoons, this comical look at language shows how combining words can give way to new meanings.
