Book Description

31 July 2012 Page a Day Calendar
The bestselling word calendar celebrates the love of language every day, perfect for word lovers, readers, writers, crossword buffs, and students. Here are hundreds of smart, unexpected, and useful words compiled by the editors at Merriam-Webster, America's most-respected dictionary. The spiritual ("ahimsa"), the political ("roorback"), the 21st century ("vaporware"), the comical ("higgledy-piggledy"), the million-dollar ("pachydermatous"), and more. Entries include definition, pronunciation, sample sentences, word history, and miscellany: Did you know "facetious" is one of the few English words that uses the vowels "a, e, i, o, u" in order?

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun calendar; ideal gift 5 Nov 2012
By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
If you are already an expert crossword puzzler, Scrabble player or vocabularly hound then you'll probably be familiar with most of the words in this calendar, but if you just have a general interest in expanding your understanding of language then it's a lot of fun. It's one of my fave gifts, and I wouldn't mind receiving it, either...
The 'New Words' calendar makes a perfect gift for anyone who writes for a living, or who just enjoys word games. It's a desktop or wall-mounted calendar, of the tear-off type with a page per day. Like others of its type the 'New Words' calendar isn't the sort you'd use for long-term planning or managing your workload during a week. It's not a planner or activity diary -- instead it gives a new motto, message or quotation for each day of the week.
I really like these forms of calendars because they tend to make us stop and think for a couple of moments -- normally early in the day, over the first cup of coffee! This one is especially entertaining, providing an educational extension to vocabulary together with details about pronunciation and correct useage. It's fun and useful; and you can share the fun by sending appropriate words/days to your friends as the year progresses.
The only downside is that because it's an international calendar, it doesn't contain info about UK holidays and dates. You should also bear in mind that it's aimed mainly at an American audience. There are also no glossy illustrations or pretty pictures; these calendars focus on the text. The info about word origins is interesting, though, and means that even if you are already familiar with the word itself then you can still pick up a new snippet about how it came to be used.

Especially useful for encouraging kids to explore language (but remember that some words will use US spellings...)
8/10

This product was delivered promptly and I got it in time to give my best friend as a present. She absolutely loved it and is now having trouble not reading through it all and saving it as a calendar! It's really interesting and a great way to start the new year.

Bought this for my husband so he could see what day and date it was easily. ( He has Alzheimers) He has always been interested in words as I have too, so it is a real pleasure every day finding a new word.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought as a present for ancient parent. 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
I had it sent straight to my fathers address. He contacted me soon after and indicated that he was delighted with it. Based on that I should recommend it to anyone as Dad is very picky. If he`s delighted that is a high score.
