Spruce up your vocabulary day by day with obscure sports terms (sclaff), words derived from other languages (frisson), contemporary buzz words (freegan), highbrow lingo that will impress your most bookish friends (Apollonian), and words that are just plain fun to say (hoity- toity). In addition to pronunciation and definition, each entry provides a fascinating word history and a sample sentence. From the editors of Merriam-Webster, America’s most respected dictionary, 365 New Words-A-Year is a verbose language lover’s dream: a great gift for writers, readers, crossword and Scrabble buffs.
