The Hidden History of Coined Words

Ralph Keyes

  • Written by one of the best-known authorities of the subject, himself a coiner of considerable proportions (he coined "post-truth," for goodness sake!)
  • Filled with delightful and surprising discoveries about the origins of certain terms and words
  • More than just a collection of interesting word anecdotes, this is an engaging narrative about the nature of coinage.
