Diarmaid O Muirithe is a lexicographer and etymologist. He explains the origins of words, where they come from, and why we use some of the expressions we do. His knowledge and erudition in languages, ancient and modern, is enormous. With sections from Computers and Shakespeare, Political Correctness, Magic and Monsters to Text Messaging, "Words We Use" is simply a joy.
