Expand your vocabulary

John McIntyre, AME for the copy desk at the Baltimore Sun, reviews "100 Words Every Word Lover Should Know," by the editors of the American Heritage Dictionaries.

The book is a compilation of words the editors found interesting -- for their origins, their meanings or their sounds.

McIntyre manages to use 78 of the words in his piece, and it's enough to make me want to buy the book. That, and it's only $5.

I'm happy to see that "troglodyte" made it on the list; it's one of my favorite words, particularly because of its vituperative properties and the fact that it's not often employed by mongoloid nogoodniks.
