This unique dictionary contains a treasury of fascinating and amusing histories of words and phrases that come from place names (toponyms). It includes over 300 entries, arranged alphabetically, with references to related words--i.e., the entry for turkey also discusses ``talk turkey'' and ``cold turkey''--as well as listings of the varied meanings the entry itself can have today. Written with wit and droll humor, this work is an excellent addition to a reference library and a must for anyone interested in words. An extensive bibliography is included for those interested in pursuing the study of words.
