About The Book

English is growing at a rate unprecedented in its 1500-year history. Now, for the first time ever, a compendium of English language miscellany that identifies the most fascinating recent developments in the language, from the realms of entertainment, technology and business to the mixing of English with foreign languages. As president of the Global Language Monitor, author Paul Payack knows his stuff and includes fun facts about word origins and usage all over the globe.
