In Praise of the Garrulous

A wonderfully, garrulous account of language and its development, but also a warning on where our language could go if we aren’t careful.

Love of words, sounds and the full gamut of the English language is sung out loud here, and that song is a rallying cry for those who also love the language as much.

Slang and common-tongue is not ridiculed but seen as a dark slope that can limit the use of words and expression by ‘streamlining’ our speech and thought processes.

As an object I found In Praise of the Garrulous desirable, with a great cover and french folds that holds information and images.
