Words never sleep,
This review is from: How to Sound Clever: Master the 600 English Words You Pretend to Understand...When You Don't (Hardcover)
Are you depressed by the bastardization of the English language into sloganized Grazia cliches and vacuous workplace vernacular ? Well, look no further as here is an effective cure for our verbal afflictions.
It will enable you to use our wonderful words with confidence and pride, elevate your W11 dinner party chat and generate impressed glances of admiration from across the table. 'How to' will also fascinate those that care about the origin of words and the evolution of their meaning.
Language is a constant work in progress - Mr Van den bergh is a brilliant and unvarnished guide for this eternal journey.
