Word Myths and Word Origins

Our bestselling set of two of the most entertaining and informative language books.

In Word Myths, author David Wilton debunks the most persistently wrong word histories, and gives the real stories behind these perennially mis-etymologized words. Word Origins is a funny, charming, and conversational book that not only tells the known origins of hundreds of words, but also shows how their origins were determined.
