The Little Book of Lost Words

Joe Gillard


An A–Z collection of some of the most unique words in history, this delightful book deals with surprisingly modern issues – such as sleeping in and procrastination – proving that while our language may change, humans do not!

The Little Book of Lost Words presents each term ready for modern-day use, complete with definition, hilarious sample sentence and cheeky historical art. You'll learn new words for your favourite cosy space (snuggery), for a dishonest politician (snollygoster), and for a youth who sleeps through the day and doesn't work (dewdropper).
