Names of things you didn't know had names (a tittle is the dot on the letter i); the ten possible origins of 'OK'; rude words that mean something different in other countries; mnemonics you will never remember: this compendium of language oddities is packed with information that might come in handy one day, or might not; plus hilariously wrong information from students' exam papers and how dogs bark in 30 languages.
