Big Book of Words You Should Know

Do you know what quatrefoil and impolitic mean? What about halcyon or narcolepsy? This book is a handy, easy-to-read reference guide to the proper parlance for any situation. In this book you will find: Words You Absolutely Should Know (covert, exonerate, perimeter), Words You Should Know But Probably Don't (dour, incendiary, scintilla), Words Most People Don't Know (schlimazel, thaumaturgy, epergne), Words You Should Know to Sound Overeducated (ad infinitum, nugatory, garrulity), Words You Probably Shouldn't Know (priapic, damnatory, labia majora), and more. Whether writing an essay, studying for a test, or trying to impress friends, family, and fellow cocktail party guests with their prolixity, you will achieve magniloquence, ebullience, and flights of rhetorical brilliance.
