Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Etymologicon: A Circular Stroll Through the Hidden Connections of the English Language (Gebundene Ausgabe)
If you enjoy discovering where words come from you'll love this book, it's one of the funniest things I've read on the subject! Reading it is a bit like having a very knowledgable and entertaining guest to tea. Mark Forsyth describes his book as "a circular stroll through the hidden connections of the English language" and that says it perfectly. He takes us on a ramble from a word to its derivatives and its various spawnings in an informative yet often hilarious way. I have the book on my coffee table and dip into it whenever I have a few minutes. A friend recommended this book to me and I'm so glad she did - it's a treat!
