The founder of History Hustle presents a handy guide for expressing yourself with history's best words.
This collection features scores of unique words from history that deal with surprisingly modern issues like sleeping in and procrastination--proving that some things never change! The Little Book of Lost Words
presents each term that's ready to be brought back into modern-day use, complete with definition, hilarious sample sentence, and cheeky historical art. You'll learn new words for the cozy room where you like to Netflix and chill (snuggery
), for a dishonest politician (snollygoster
), and for a young person who sleeps through the day and doesn't work (dewdropper
). If you like Lost in Translation
, Shakespeare Insult Generator
, Drunk History
, and Roald Dahl--and you delight in the way words like blatteroon
roll off the tongue--then you're the word lover this book was written for. Want to know what a fizgig or groke is? Read this book!
