Description

Welcome to a year of wonder through the English language with Susie Dent, lexicographer extraordinaire and queen of Countdown’s Dictionary Corner.

From ‘Turning a Blind Eye’ (Nelson putting the telescope to his missing eye to ignore the order to stop fighting) to why ‘May Day’ became a distress call; from ‘stealing someone’s thunder’ to the real Jack the Lad, from ‘tartle’ (forgetting someone’s name) to ‘snaccident’ (unintentionally eating a whole packet of biscuits).

Word Perfect is her brilliant linguistic almanac full of unforgettable true stories tied to every day of the year. You’ll never be lost for words again.
