This book explores what is funny in the words of English themselves by taking a close look at the 100 funniest of them selected by Dr. Robert Beard, formerly Dr. Language at yourDictionary.com and currently Dr. Goodword at alphaDictionary.com. After a short essay on what makes words funny, Dr. Beard examines the pronunciation, meaning, usage, and history of each word, giving several ?creative? examples of its use. Among Dr. Beard's selection you will find the likes of ?absquatulate,? ?bowyangs?, ?collywobbles,? ?gongoozle,? ?hemidemisemiquaver,? and ?snollygoster.? Dr. Beard holds a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Michigan and taught Russian and Linguistics at Bucknell University for 35 years. His various ?word-of-the-day? features go out to more than 100,000 people around the world every day.
