Description
Readers may think twice about using such seemingly innocuous words as "pretty," "gymnasium," and "goodbye" after perusing this volume. In it, Brohaugh reveals the original meanings of a number of commonly used words--meanings that might offend the more delicate sensibilities of modern hearers, were they made aware of them. Brohaugh is the editor or author of several books on writing. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
