In an entertaining journey through the peculiarities, illogicalities and sheer charm of the English language, Much Ado About English wanders down the language’s idiosyncratic and surprising byways. Richard Watson Todd considers everything from the origins of words to their erratic spelling and unexpected uses, where words have come from and how they have changed and the myriad ways we use this flexible tongue.
