The Little Book of Lost Words: Collywobbles, Snollygosters, and 86 Other Surprisingly Useful Terms Worth Resurrecting
by Joe Gillard
The founder of History Hustle presents a handy guide for expressing yourself with history’s best words.
This collection features scores of unique words from history that deal with surprisingly modern issues like sleeping in and procrastination–proving that some things never change! The Little Book of Lost Words presents each term that’s ready to be brought back into modern-day use, complete with definition, hilarious sample sentence, and cheeky historical art. You’ll learn new words for the cozy room where you like to Netflix and chill (snuggery), for a dishonest politician (snollygoster), and for a young person who sleeps through the day and doesn’t work (dewdropper). If you like Lost in Translation, Shakespeare Insult Generator, Drunk History, and Roald Dahl–and you delight in the way words like blatteroon and flapdoodle roll off the tongue–then you’re the word lover this book was written for.
