This is a book of words and their definitions. Not your usual everyday common words. Interesting words like kniddle, ardfast, botum, and mip, to just list a few.

The words cover a multitude of topics, some of them on the crass or vulgar side (actually most of them). I found the words and definitions to be humorous and some made me laugh out loud.

I have to admit that I haven't been able to finish all of it, as it is a bit like reading a dictionary. Which is why I would have loved having a DTB for the reading room. These would be just the thing to .....never mind the book made my mind go to bathroom humor...

If you love word play this is a gem of a book.

I highly recommend it.

How to describe "A Dictionary of Linguistic Absurdities"? Imagine if you took Rich Hall's "Sniglets" or Douglas Adams' "The Meaning of Liff" ... and then stripped out everything even mildly humorous or imaginative. Then you'd have this book. It's mean-spirited, juvenile and devoid of intelligence. Don't waste your time or your money on it.

This must have been cobbled together by a bunch of adolescent nincompoops. Most (if not all) of the words appear to be entirely fabricated.

Here's a small part of one definition:
"The benefits of the bintmell are several - farmers can watch it rust while chewing on corn-stalks instead of violating their children, sexually abusing livestock or giving their EU subsidies to ageing punk-rockers to advertise their butter."

Even free, this is overpriced; it's a waste of time and an insult to the intelligence of anyone who reads it.
