English teacher who has dedicated more than 35 years in research and organization of English words that are derived from Latin and Greek sources.Review:
I appreciate this book as a necessary part of English education where Latin and Greek are not taught as subjects. Robertson's Words for a Modern Age is organized so that all of the Latin, Greek, and English words and phrases are easy to find in ther alphabetical arrangements. A set of fourteen apendices completes the practical utility of the book in several respects, e.g. lists of phobias, divinations, oxymora, pleonasms, and Latin phrases used in spoken and written English. -- Professor, Dr. of Philology, Klaus Guenther Sallmann, Johannes Gutenberg-Universitaet Mainz, Germany
Robertson's Words for a Modern Age is a useful reference of many interesting medical and non-medical words and their origins. The appendices are unique collections of words which are informative and entertaining. This book is a welcome addition to my library where it fills a void between my medical dictionary and my thesaurus. (Colonel Paul A. Edwards, Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), Ph.D.) -- Colonel Paul A. Edwards, Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), Ph.D.
Students are finding your reference, Robertson's Words for a Modern Age, interesting and informative. The more they use it, the more they realize its value and the depth of their language. -- John W. Vayo, English teacher, McHenry, Illinois
