A gallop through all kinds of places, ages and deep-pockets of lost verbals. Not a circular stroll, as the panorama of forgotten descriptions, verbs, nouns et alia all rush past your gaze as you tear through this conversational lexicon. I want to be able to remember to use “querimonious” in my everyday speech when confronted by a Brexit conversationalist. Why can’t I drop “wamplecropt” into the sentence when I talk about, say, another prospect of a trip across the Irish Sea? These and other linguistic gems are all to be found within Forsyth’s pages.
