Waiting for minimum critic reviews

Synopsis

In these pages you will discover words you never knew existed, and rediscover many that you had forgotten or had given up all hope of ever seeing again.



If the amoindering of our language by fifish chuffs leads you to fleer and the infandous overslipping of orthoepy makes you feel wamble, this is most certainly the book for you.



Prepare to fike, gane and gaure as Dr Johnson certiorates, carrying carotic catachresis to new heights, and providing all lovers of leguleian lexicographical detail with a rich feast of mullock, cultch and peltry.

 

About Neil Johnson

See more books from this Author
Dr Neil Johnson is the author of a considerable number of scientific articles which few have ever read and no-one remembers, around a dozen equally influential books on biomedical topics, and a series of books for children, The King and Wizard Stories. One time Reader in Neuropharmacology at the University of Lancaster, he is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, the Institute of Biology, the British Psychological Society and the Collegium Internationale Neuropsychopharmacologicum, which means that he can not only read big words, but has figured out how to look as though he understands most of them.
