Dactionary - paper book

Dactionary - the dictionary with attitude ... or a reactionary dictionary.


Words - shortest, longest, silliest, backwards, forwards, weirdest, history of, uninvented, real meanings and others you've never heard of - and unsubstantiated opinions fill this fascinating book. You'll be educated, amused, annoyed and deeply moved by the words we use, the words we don't but should, the words we do but shouldn't and where they all come from ... probably!


Philip is a writer, editor and publisher with a fascination for words of all languages. Here he's limited himself to those in English, mainly. However, some from Greek, Hebrew, Latin, Maori, Martian and other origins creep in from time to time. Delve into the world's first dactionary and enjoy!
