One thought on “The Greeks Had a Word for It: Words You Never Knew You Can't Do Without

  1. Celine Evren

    Quite interesting to learn some meaningful words from all over the world cultures I liked it but you cannot really consider it as a literature source, it is like a entertaining funny dictionary Good if you would like to pose around with using some of these intellectual words

  2. Deborah Pickstone

    Andrew Taylor s compilation of words we haven t got in English and he thinks we need I love books about words and this is a pretty good one, displaying a nice sense of humour on the part of Mr Taylor, who never gets so clever that it irritates Amusing and interesting.

  3. George Boyer

    It was a nice short read, I love learning about other languages and this book helped satisfy a crave I ve recently been having for books about words and linguistics Overall, if you re interested in languages and what certain words or lack thereof can say about that language and it s culture, I d highly recommend it.

  4. Story_Girl

    An interesting and educational read that has many great insights into other cultures It is let down by the fact there are a few words included merely to be crudely funny or silly.

  5. Judith Rich

    Very funny little book I was given for Christmas.My favourite was the Armenian word meaning the embarrassment of realising you ve eaten it all Which I must learn As I need to use it whenever I look at an empty packet of nuts bar of chocolate family sized quiche.
