Do words fail you?

Never again, once you've become the proud owner of The Complete Uxbridge English Dictionary. Every word has a meaning, but over the years those meanings change.

Dip into these helpfully illustrated pages and you'll find many of the words you use every day without ever realising that their up-to-date definition is something entirely different.

Words like:

‘Bunny' (rather like a bun)

‘Cherish' (rather like a chair

‘Cardiology' (the study of knitwear)

‘Buggery' (the study of insects)

‘Venezuala' (a gondola with a harpoon)

‘Norway' (a Geordie exclamation of surprise)

‘Ivy' (the Roman for "four")

‘Faculty' (cockney for "there's no more PG Tips")

Thanks to The Complete Uxbridge English Dictionary you can now use familiar, everyday words in total confidence, fully appraised of their latest meanings. Made famous by its regular use on Radio 4’s I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, this is the dictionary that will leave you never lacking a bon mot for any occasion.

Happy wording!

“Brilliantly funny”

I bought this for my Aunt for Christmas and she absolutely loved it. I've only given it four stars because the copy I got looked a bit shabby, I certainly wouldn't have taken that copy from a bookshop.
