Recently two new word books showed up the same day in the new books at the library, both small-format hardbacks: Word Refugees: In Pursuit of Wanted Words by Barbara Wallraff (HarperCollins 2006), $14.95; and The Meaning of Tingo and Other Extraordinary Words from Around the World by Adam Jacot de Boinod (Penguin 2006), $19.95. I recommend the former.
