    Chloe Rhodes presides over this entertaining exploration among the legions of words, from aficionado to zeitgeist, that English-speakers have pilfered from across the globe. She delves into their derivations and gives witty examples of their use as well as telling the stories of how and why we absorbed such exotic imports.
