Synopsis: In this quirky and humorous volume, Graeme Donald explores the fascinating links and curious connections between words. While at first these word pairs may appear to have very little in common, owing to years of linguistic shift, their origins can be traced back to the same root. In exploring these etymological twins, Words of a Feather reveals the oddities of the English language and the fascinating stories that have made our vocabulary so rich. The perfect gift for language lovers and history buffs alike, this beautiful book contains over 200 word pairs with a common ancestry.

About the Author: Graeme Donald is the author of a number of books on the meaning and origins of words, and on scientific and historical misconceptions. He has written for many newspapers and had a column about word origins in the Today newspaper for more than 10 years.
