An amusing book for word fiends, this is a fun vocabulary romp. The Logodaedalian's Dictionary references bizarre words which frequently are of a bawdy nature. Complete with quotes from obscure works, the reader will be making a list of the books he simply must find. You may begin sprinkling your conversation with tongue-twisting, eyebrow raising words to the mystification of your friends. Word origins and etymologies are missing, but would likely have impeded the amusement.
