Words We Use
Robert Lord (au)
This absorbing book introduces the reader to some of the main facets of words as they make their presence felt in everyday use. Author Robert Lord, for many years a professor of applied linguistics, discusses what words are, how we use them, how they originate and change their meaning, how new words are created, as well as their use in speech and literature and many other aspects of these building blocks of language. His purpose is to stimulate, to get the reader to look more closely at the ways of words and to provoke a re-examination of what is often taken for granted. “A fascinating insight into an endlessly intriguing subject.” Illustrations.
