Synopsis: Join the ranks of the CLERISY

There are certain qualities that can set you apart from the crowd–like wearing the right clothing, jewelry, or shoes. But nothing draws attention or sets you apart like knowing and using a superior and aggrandizing vocabulary.

You'll ascend to the uppermost ranks of literary intelligentsia once you acquire the grandiloquent terms in this lush volume. More than 500 entries help you replace common, everyday language with meretricious words guaranteed to make an indelible impression on your friends, co-workers, and family.

With The Gilded Tongue, you'll never have to settle for plain, simple expression again.

From the Publisher: What distinguishes "The Gilded Tongue" from the banausic (practical or utilitarian) volumes on my reference shelf is that it is great fun to read. --Jim Busch, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

The point of learning new words is not to impress your friends or to seem more intelligent than>they. The point is to see more, to understand more. The Gilded Tongue uncovers old connections, introduces new spheres, and--in reminding us that there are words for all thoughts, all feelings, all things--upholds all humankind. --Robert Hartwell Fiske, editor and publisher of The Vocabula Review
