Allow me to enucleate. Michael Gates is no blatherskite. Au contraire, Mon ami. Nor does he bloviate like a common blatteroon. And “The Word I’m Thinking Of” is neither gasconade nor glaikery. No longer will you feel threatened by an invidious, gormless gowk or peccant killcow. This luciferous tome will help you peregrinate from stultiloquence to puissance in short order.
Do not think I am ultracrepidarian, or spouting ugsome tushery. Nor am I a mendacious makebate. If ataraxia is your goal, “The Word I’m Thinking Of” provides an anfractuous desideratum. I recommend it for your personal edification, or just for jocularity. Eschew obfuscation! Kthxbye.
I have truly enjoyed reading this book. My husband and son, probably not so much, since I regale them daily with new examples of unappreciated bon mots.
My verdict: why are you still reading this review? Why haven't you purchased this book yet?
of interesting and unusual words, add pronunciation and definition, but he includes a literary quotation or a personal
comment using the word. His quotations are from widely varied sources and are very interesting.
I enjoyed this book very much. CS
Most entries have along with definitions a quote that uses the word and a humorous comment from the author about that word.
A fun read that may give you new words that you can use in Scrabble.
