WORDS WORDS WORDS In an effort to bring some order to my unruly words and language shelf I attempt here to give a succinct evaluation of the 33 books on it which are essentially devoted to words Those dealing with usage etymology language development and general linguistic issues will I hope be evaluated in future reviews As a uick test of whether this review is likely to be of interest to you consider the followingThe area on your or any mammal s back which you cannot reach to scratch is known as the acnestis Lurgulary is the term used to denote the act of poisoning a water sourceThe adjective meaning pertaining to walnuts is juglandaceousThe verb to maffick means to engage in wild boisterous protracted revelry in the streets and is a backformation from the city name Mafeking The association derives from the celebrations that followed the relief of Mafeking on May 17 1900 after a protracted siege by the Boers when word of the rescue reached London the city erupted in wild celebration which went on for days If these words fill you with irresistible glee despite the very low probability you will ever need to use any of them in casual conversation then at least some of the books considered in this review are likely to appeal to your latent logolepsy Read on If on the other hand you react to new weird or obsolete words with indifference you may safely skip the rest of this reviewWith 33 books to evaluate obviously I need some kind of system So I will evaluate each book on the following 4 criteria breadth of coverage does it really deliver the goods that is deliver a reasonable uota of truly satisfying obscure words scholarship is it to be trusted Are there any egregious errors Is there evidence of adeuate background research Cross checking with other sources usability how user friendly is it Level of cross referencing appropriate Adeuate examples of word usage Thematic organization Helpful citations and indexing Is the pronunciation key helpful to the casual reader or does it reuire mastery of the IPA international phonetic alphabet charm an entirely nebulous uality but probably the most important Were the authors having fun when they wrote it And is that sense of fun transmitted to the reader Because frankly there s nothing lethally boring than a big book full of fancy words assembled by someone who isn t almost orgasmically enthusiastic about sharing those words A couple of the books below make ludicrous attempts to engage readers with promises that expanding their vocabulary will lead to improved success in life Such promises are worded in a way that makes it obvious that success is being measured in the basest most soul destroying moneygrubbing terms having just the right two dollar word at the tip of your reptilian tongue will open all the right doors affording you countless opportunities to further your spiritual degradation by playing round after round of lickspittle golf with your vile nouveau riche social climbing boss This notion is of course frankly ridiculous being based on implicit and utterly false premise that mere possession of the dictionary in uestion will result in the desired augmentation of vocabulary Well as Charles Earle Funk might put it horsefeathers The only way you are going to augment your vocabulary gentle reader is by reading widely voraciously and indiscriminately And if you haven t figured that out by now in life then none of the books below is gonna help you sucker So with the understanding that books like these interest us because of their potential to surprise and delight and not as stepping stones to greater status or wealth or success let s get on with it I will assign each book a score of 0 to 5 on each of the four dimensions discussed previously So that a superstar like Mrs Byrne might hope to end up with a total score close to 20 duds may expect to languish in the single digits Obviously this is going to take several posts I will delay the list of books considered until the next post coming up immediately
