This sequel to Dr Johnson's Reliquary of Rediscovered Words, once again provides not only a rich feast of rare and unusual words but also a veritable mine of valuable information and undisquised humour. Who, for example, would ever have thought that a knick-knackatory might be the British equivalent of the French patisserie? How many people know that a schcenobatist has a pole dancer beaten when it comes to flexibility? These, and many other conversational gems, are featured in There's a Word for That!
