DESCRIPTION:
Did you know, that in Germany a young man with suspiciously good manners is called Tantenverfurhrer (literally, aunt seducer), that in Namibia there is a word for walking on tiptoe through warm sand or that, in Welsh, gwarlingo is the rushing sound a grandfather clock makes before striking the hour. Whether you are physiggomai (Ancient Greek - excited by eating garlic) or knedlikovy (Czech - rather partial to dumplings), there are words here to charm and amuse everyone. Drawing on the collective wisdom of over 280 languages and packed with charming illustrations, "Toujours Tingo" is the perfect book for anyone interested in words, language or the world around them.
