This is a fascinating dictionary of foreign words and expressions commonly used (and misused) in English. It is intended to help anyone who is occasionally confused by a foreign term which is commonly used in English but not always understood even by 'sophisticated people. Both fun and informative, this one-of-a-kind lexicon clarifies hundreds of words and phrases from Greek, Latin, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, and Yiddish that have been appropriated by the English language but are often confused, misused or misunderstood.
