12/20/12 – LitStack’s 2 a Day Giveaway: The Etymologicon by Mark Forsyth

The Etymologicon : A Circular Stroll through the Hidden Connections of the English Language by Mark Forsyth

 

The Etymologicon Cover

The Etymologicon springs from Mark Forsyth’s Inky Fool blog on the strange connections between words. It’s an occasionally ribald, frequently witty and unerringly erudite guided tour of the secret labyrinth that lurks beneath the English language, taking in monks and monkeys, film buffs and buffaloes, and explaining precisely what the Rolling Stones have to do with gardening.
