Descripción

Texto en inglés. Tapa blanda de editorial ilustrada. Como nuevo. Do you know why… …a mortgage is literally a death pledge? …why guns have girls’ names? …why salt is related to soldier? You’re about to find out… The Etymologicon (e-t?-‘mä-lä-ji-kän) is: *Witty (wi-te\): Full of clever humor *Erudite (er-?-dit): Showing knowledge *Ribald (ri-b?ld): Crude, offensive The Etymologicon is a completely unauthorized guide to the strange underpinnings of the English language. It explains: how you get from “gruntled” to “disgruntled”, why you are absolutely right to believe that your meager salary barely covers “money for salt”, how the biggest chain of coffee shops in the world (hint: Seattle) connects to whaling in Nantucket, and what precisely the Rolling Stones have to do with gardening.
