Product Overview

Fun to read, "Quips, Quotes and Savvy Sayings" offers a fresh resource for lovers of the language. Phyllis Martin extends the advice about word usage found in "Word Watcher''s Handbook,"

Word buffs will find a wealth of techniques and source material for brightening writing, speaking, and even ordinary conversation. The book provides pithy comments and quotations about words, work, and the ways of the world. A special section discusses words derived from the names of people, animals as figures of speech, and clever sayings of children. Last words and epitaphs provide both wit and wisdom.

Phyllis Martin''s unique personal writing style enlivens the work. Readers will find the particular words, phrases, or illustrations they wish to use by means of the thorough index and then linger to read for entertainment.
