A creation that gives an engaging insight into the origin of the everyday language that we use, this new paperback edition of the Oxford School Dictionary of Word Origins provides additional language support and information through good humour and absorbing word histories. It even features entries on especially curious ‘yucky’, and ‘mind-boggling’ words, with a full thematic section on words from the worlds of food, fashion, dinosaur names, invented and onomatopoeic words, plus so much more. This is the perfect book to make learning a joy for everyone!
