Product Description
All Kinds of People Knowledge Cards
And You've Met Most of Them

Ask any recent high school graduate: you'll hear that the English language is being stripped of its precision. (Or you would hear that if the recent graduate knew the word "precision.") Charles Harrington Elster, author of There's a Word for It!, fights the good fight against our vocabulary's tendency to shrink and shrink. On each card Harrington brings us a pair of arcane but precise words that describe particular types of humans. These nouns are couched in a microstory that gently suggests what they might mean. The card's opposite defines the words and supplies their correct pronunciation. Step right up and wonder at the marital secrets of the philocubist and the philologist!
