THE WORD MUSEUM: THE MOST REMARKABLE ENGLISH WORDS EVER FORGOTTEN, Kacirk, Jeffrey
90 Kacirk, Jeffrey THE WORD MUSEUM: THE MOST REMARKABLE ENGLISH WORDS EVER FORGOTTEN
Touchstone 2000 0684857618 / 9780684857619 Paperback Fine 
Kacirk has written a new book on the same theme as his last book, Forgotten English, gathering hundreds of words that have slipped from common usage. By searching old dictionaries and glossaries, he has compiled words that ap peal to him based on their sound (although there is no pronunciation guide) , show either endearing or humorous aspects of their times, or illustrate c ustoms. The result is this lark of a book, sure to appeal to all who love w ords and the sounds they make. In this Aladdin's cave of vocabulary are wor ds like "bouffage" (very satisfying), "ugsumness" (terribleness), "snirp" ( shrink), and "maffle" (stutter). The work may be of use to academic librari es where there is strong interest in lexicography, for, in addition to the words and definitions, there is a lengthy bibliography.

94 Kermode, Frank THE OXFORD BOOK OF LETTERS
Oxford University Press, USA 2005 0192141880 / 9780192141880 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A highly collectible,tight clean copy, protected in a new brodart wrapper, no inscriptions, unclipped dustjacket, this is not an Ex-Lib or a BCE/BOMC edition. Sir Philip Sidney begins a May 1578 letter, "Few words are best." Happily, Frank and Anita Kermode, the editors of this 500-page collection, disagree. Thanks to them, we can now guiltlessly eavesdrop on writers such as Elizabeth I, Pope, Keats, and the most verbal Marx Brother. When Warner Brothers objects to the title A Night in Casablanca, Groucho innocently responds, "I just don't understand your attitude. Even if you plan on re-releasing your picture, I am sure that the average movie fan could learn in time to distinguish between Ingrid Bergman and Harpo. I don't know whether I could, but I would certainly like to try." A paragraph later, Groucho tells the studio, "Professionally, we were brothers long before you were." The ironies just keep on coming.
