4.0 out of 5 stars If you are interested in worss you will love this book!, 12 Nov 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Concise Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology (Oxford Paperback Reference) (Paperback)
This book is fantastic. When I was a boy my father used to always say to me when I asked what a word meant 'look it up in the dictionary'. This has stayed with me into my adult life, and encouraged me to learn new words and their meanings. This book goes a further step and shows where words originate which is facinating and provides many dinner party conversations.
I have also read some of the Chambers dictionary, and was dissapointed with some of the americanism in this book. The Oxford Dictionary is consise and clear in its layout, and a throughly good reference book. My knowledge of the english language has increased tenfold - highly recommended.
