Product Details

Praise

"[A] breezy cultural road trip through American regionalisms… lively, enlightening and witty." — AmericanProfile

"A fascinating survey of idioms." — St. Petersburg Times

"Simultaneously full of witty asides and linguistic erudition, Wicked Good Words is one of those rare books that you will read too fast and will find yourself wishing you could read for the first time all over again." — Ammon Shea, author of Reading the OED

"As someone who grew up in the land of wicked pissa Sox games, what a delight it was to read about alligator pears, sundogs, piggling, sad cakes, doodinkus, jacklegs, and so many other American regionalisms." — David Wolman, author of Righting the Mother Tongue
