Book: Peter Novobatzky «Depraved and Insulting English»
Производитель: "Houghton Mifflin Harcourt"
Originally published as two distinct collections, Depraved and Insulting English brings to light the language`s most offensive and obscene words - words that have fallen out of today`s lexicon but will no doubt delight, amuse, and in some cases prove surprisingly useful. Who hasn`t searched for the right word to describe a colleague`s maschalephidrosis (runaway armpit perspiration) or a boss`s pleonexia (insane greed)? And what better way is there to insult the scombroid landlord (resembling a mackerel) or that tumbrel of a brother-in-law (a person who is drunk to the point of vomiting) than by calling him by his rightful name? A compact compendium of ingenious words for anyone who`s been tongue-tied, flabbergasted, or dumbfounded, Depraved and Insulting English supplies the appropriate vocabulary for any occasion. Word lovers, chronic insulters, berayers, bescumbers, and bespewers need fear no more - finding the correct word to wow your friends or silence your enemies just got a whole lot easier.
