About this title

Synopsis:

English is a funny language. Consider:
Would you call church music organic?
How come it's father, mother, brother, but not sisther?
Why do doctors use a scalpel when they're not operating on your head?
Would you say that an engraver is a cemetery worker?
Isn't it macabre that slaughter is mostly laughter?
Wouldn't it seem that the opposite of formality should be casualty?
Don't sheep have to be deranged before shearing?

Here is a humorous collection of over 1,000 English words-a veritable encyclopedia-including goofinitions, mock antonyms, collective nouns, hyphens, punishing adjectives, bundle words and much more. This is a must-have volume for comedians, speech writers, punsters, toastmasters, English teachers, and all students of language.

About the Author:

Jim Wegryn is a freelance writer who has published a science fiction novel and is working on several other projects. He is former computer consultant, fiscal analyst, teacher, and technical report writer.
