More than 200 of the latest additions to the ever-expanding English lexicon are presented in his quirky and entertaining resource. Such gems as denture venturer—the older adventure traveller—and textual harassment—persistently insulting someone by text message—are each given a brief explanation as to origin and an example of usage. Humorous and fully up-to-date, this is the perfect guide for any and all language enthusiasts.
