    Following the success of his first volume of outlandish vocabulary, 'deranged lexicographer' Peter Bowler presents another 600 weapons to arm the verbally oppressed. From abdabs to zoopery, Bowler has collected 'words that would otherwise lie unseen and moribund in the smallest print of the largest dictionaries', with notes on their meaning and usage to prevent any catachresis.
