Product description

Review

"Jaw-droppingly wonderful ... A marvellous and surprising book which left me breathless and dizzy with delight. The ironic, playful tone at the beginning gradates into something serious that is never pompous, intellectually and historically complex and yet always pellucidly laid out. Plus I learned the word plaidoyer which I shall do my utmost to use every day" (Stephen Fry)

"Fabulously interesting ... a remarkably rich, provocative and intelligent work of pop science" (Sunday Times)

"Brilliant [and] beautifully written" (Financial Times)

"So robustly researched and wonderfully told that it is hard to put down" (New Scientist)

"A delight to read" (Spectator)

Book Description

A brilliant and provocative exploration of how the cultures we live in affect the languages we speak and how we think of the world around us.
