not the fun read i was expecting, ..not as entertaining as "eats shoots and leaves" style books, but if youre fascinated by word evolution, this is ok to have by the loo and you can learn some quirky fact at every visit. not a book to be read from start to end.

"This is a great update to the author's previous 'The Language Report: English on the Move 2000 - 2007'. Essential reading for anyone wanting to gain an overview of how (British) English is evolving, whether as a student, or native speaker, of the language.

The wife is fasinated by Susie Dent. It did what it said on the tin. What more can you ask?.

As always, Susie Dent comes up with the most fascinating words that one would never expect to find anywhere - least of all in a dictionary ! I wonder if words that go out of fashion/use are removed as quickly as new ones appear i.e. are English dictionaries becoming larger ? Full marks to Susie for keeping us up to date by writing such an interesting book.

Bought this book as a present for a friend who regularly watches Countdown, and enjoys what Susie Dent says about how words came about.

A very interesting book.
