Word Origins & Their Romantic Stories
By Wilfred Funk
The story of words and their origins presents a vast amount of information. It is not, however, either a history or a textbook. The material, while strictly factual, is as entertaining as fiction.
Here the reader will find the life stories of thousands of words-how, when and where they originated, how their meanings changed and developed through the centuries, and many other facts that give a better understanding of the English language as it is today.
Wifred Funk, with is varied career as a author, editor, lexicographer, was for sixteen years president of Funk & Wagnells, the firm founded by his father, long publishers of Standard Dictionary Series and the new Standard Ecyclopedia. His place in modern literature is greatly distinguished.
