Descripció

'Susie Dent is a one-off. She breathes life and fun into words and language' Pam Ayres

' Susie Dent is a national treasure' Richard Osman

Welcome to a year of wonder with Susie Dent, lexicographer, logophile, and longtime queen of Countdown's Dictionary Corner.

From the real Jack the Lad to the theatrically literal story behind stealing someone's thunder , from tartle (forgetting someone's name at the very moment you need it) to snaccident (the unintentional eating of an entire packet of biscuits), WORD PERFECT is a brilliant linguistic almanac full of unforgettable stories, fascinating facts, and surprising etymologies tied to every day of the year. You'll never be lost for words again.
