500 Words You Should Know

Caroline Taggart

Caroline Taggart, author of many titles in the ‘I Used to Know That’ series, explains the meaning of 500 words you may have ‘forgotten you knew’ that can enrich daily conversation. From the ‘erudite’ to the ‘risible’, the ‘ethereal’ to the ‘profane’, her selection also includes words with roots in other languages, such as ‘halcyon’ from the Latin for ‘kingfisher’, and many are accompanied by notes on their origin, use and comparatives.
