This book aims to arouse curiosity about English words and about the nature of language in general, especially among students who do not intend to specialize in linguistics. It examins words from various backgrounds - poetry, journalism, advertising. No previous knowqledge of linguistics is assumed. The approach to the study of words is descriptive rather than theoretical. It looks at the structure of words, their meaning, spelling and pronunciation, how new words are manufactured or imported, and how the meaning of words change with time. Katambe also investigates how the mind deals with the amazing intellectual feat of retrieving the right word from its mental dictionary during conversation. This 1994 Routledge Paperback is in Near Mint condition.
