        About The Book

        Oxford editors have selected more than 11,000 core words of the English language, with dates of first recorded evidence taken from ongoing research for the Oxford English Dictionary.

        Well-known idioms are included with dates of original use and notes as to how and when they came about, such as within earshot, say it with flowers, and looking for trouble. Popular, yet wrong beliefs about the origins of words such as posh and snob are explored. The Oxford Essential Dictionary of Word Histories is the ideal reference for students, language specialists, teachers, or anyone interested in the history behind the words we use.

        • Word usage illustrated with quotations from Shakespeare, Hemingway, Austen, and many others.
