Ammon Shea was ten when he first discovered the joy of reading a dictionary rather than using it to look a word up. Little did he imagine that one day he would spend over $1,000 and sacrifice an entire bookcase and a whole year to the twenty volumesMoreAmmon Shea was ten when he first discovered the joy of reading a dictionary rather than using it to look a word up.

Little did he imagine that one day he would spend over $1,000 and sacrifice an entire bookcase and a whole year to the twenty volumes that make up the king of all reference books: The Oxford English Dictionary.It was a year that changed his life, not least when he fell in love with a lexicographer. In this hilarious, personal and fascinating book, with a chapter for each letter of the alphabet, Shea introduces us to hundreds of words he discovered that deserve to see the light of day again, and explains why. Want to know the word for the area on your back that you cant reach to scratch (acnestis)?

Or the term for the smell of earth just after a rainstorm (petrichor)? Or perhaps youre just looking for the word to describe that feeling of saying enough (satisdiction). This book is all you need.
