Norman W. Schur


Guaranteed to enlighten even the most articulate and literate, 2000 Most Challenging and Obscure Words delivers an affectionate and witty romp through the marginalia of English. Organized like a standard dictionary, the book provides 2000 "definitions" that stand alone as informative, often hilarious, miniature essays, giving not only the meaning but also sample usage and etymology. From a fortiori to zymurgy, the author leaves no lexicographic stone unturned in proving that some of the most challenging and obscure words can also be among the most captivating and evocative.Norman W. Schur is the author of '2000 Most Challenging Obscure Words' with ISBN 9780883658482 and ISBN 0883658488.
