Home Etymology


Language and Meaning in Human PerspectiveLanguage and Meaning in Human Perspective by S. K. Leung
Against the popular belief that language and meaning are essentially public in their epistemological origin, this book offers a philosophical basis for its antithesis. The author refutes the separation of reference from meaning, the long-held logical principle of the identity of the indiscernibles, and Wittgenstein's no-private-language philosophy.


VerbatimVerbatim: From the Bawdy to the Sublime, the Best Writing on Language for Word Lovers, Grammar Mavens, and Armchair Linguists by Erin McKean
A witty overview of the uses and abuses of the English language from the pages of Verbatim magazine features contributions by Richard Lederer, Jesse Sheidlower, Joe Queenan, Frederick Cassidy, and William Kunstler on everything from the use of language in the Bible to the components of a British soccer chant. Original. 20,000 first printing.


HorsefeathersHorsefeathers: And Other Curious Words by Charles Earle Funk
If readers have ever wondered why the candy is called butterscotch; why a certain Southern food is called a hushpuppy; or why log supports in a fireplace are known as andirons, or, sometimes, firedogs; then they'll be fascinated by the origins of the over 600 words discussed in "a book that gets curiouser and curiouser as it goes along" ("San Francisco Chronicle").
