Review:

`Massive and endlessly fascinating.' - Paul Davies, Mail on Sunday

`Endlessly fascinating: quirkish, illuminating, and instructive. To browse in it is like eating peanuts: addictive to the extreme. If one must limit an appraisal of Partridge's torrential work to but one adjective, the choice is a breeze: stupendous.' - Leo Rosten, Encounter

`Paul Beale's eighth edition preserves the emphasis and lightly worn pedantry of earlier editions and enhances the work's usefulness with a single alphabetical listing, more systematic internal arrangement of entries, and of course more recent material.' - The Year's Work in English Studies
