Publisher Description

English is full of foreign languages! As the world gets ever more connected, English pulls in all sorts of phrases and words--whatever gets the job done. 


From Latin and Greek terms in law and medicine to French words for food and dance, from Sanskrit to Russian and Chinese, English prospers and grows as it borrows.


FOREIGNISMS: A Dictionary of Foreign Expressions Commonly (and Not So Commonly) Used in English is a fun, fascinating, alphabetical guide to hundreds of these terms, complete with easy pronunciation explanations. Never flounder or feel at a loss: with FOREIGNISMS, you'll know exactly what these funny, fancy, foreignisms mean.
