Stories Behind Everyday Words We Use

Khaled Ahmed

Behind each word there is a story. And words are most often linked to many languages. These stories are rarely told. If you want to know how our everyday Urdu words are linked to English, German, French and Russian words this is the book to read. It makes you sensitive to the words you use every day and encourages you to explore their journey across civilizations.
