A joyful year of language for word nerds, crossword and Scrabble buffs, and vocabulary builders of all ages.
Enhance your next colloquy (conversation, dialogue) with a cavalcade (a dramatic sequence or procession: series) of new words to use in daily life. The bestselling word calendar with more than 7.2 million copies in print, 365 New Words-A-Year belongs on the desktops of students, writers, readers, crossword addicts, and other language lovers. Bolster your vocabulary with scientific words (eolian : borne, deposited, produced, or eroded by the wind), words adopted from other languages (fanfaronade: empty boasting: bluster), words about words (haplology: contraction of a word by omission of one or more similar sounds or syllables), and more. Each entry includes a definition, pronunciation, sample sentence, and detailed etymology.
