Are you antsy, eggy or is life just cushty? Does your doctor think you're a heartsink - maybe because you tend to have belters? Do you know what the new words that constantly creep into the English language really mean? This second volume of Frantic Semantics is an amusing and informative guide to the ever-changing world of modern English, giving 130 definitions for new words from maven and lairy to pixilated and watershed. Essential reading for all those who are occasionally baffled by our mother tongue, and the perfect present for word buffs everywhere.
