A Million Words and Counting is a celebration of the vast variety and
ever-evolving expressiveness of humanity's most universal language.
Fun and informative, this guide is a joyful exploration of English as it
spreads across the globe, as it is spoken today, and as it expands into
the future. Each entertaining chapter of this ambitious linguistic survey
examines another source of new English, including Hollywood, youth
culture, other languages, corporate boardrooms, and tongue-tied
presidents. An engaging compendium of English-language facts and
factoids, this is a trivia lover's goldmine and a logophile's playground.
