Description
From Mark Forsyth, the author of the #1 international bestseller, The Etymologicon , comes a book of weird words for familiar situations. The Horologicon (or book of hours) contains the most extraordinary words in the English language, arranged according to what hour of the day you might need them. Do you wake up feeling rough? Then you're philogrobolized . Find yourself pretending to work? That's fudgelling . And this could lead to rizzling , if you feel sleepy after lunch. Though you are sure to become a sparkling deipnosopbist by dinner. Just don't get too vinomadefied ; a drunk dinner companion is never appreciated. From ante-jentacular to snudge by way of quafftide and wamblecropt , at last you can say, with utter accuracy, exactly what you mean.
