Dirty Words; The Story of Sex Talk
Morton, Mark,
ISBN: 1843543842
Atlantic books, London, 2005. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. First Edition. the book is second-hand. There is no damage to be described. The dustjackets, similarly has no damage. Some books, like murder mysteries, are meant to be read in one go, over a single afternoon while it's raining outside and you can sit curled up on your couch. This book is a bit different. If you read too much of it at one stretch, your public headache, much as you would if you did 20 crossword puzzles in a row. To my mind, the best way to enjoy the extensive etymological lore in The Lover's Tongue is to read one chapter, put it down, and come back to another chapter a day or 2 later. You can, if you want to, do the chapters of the order that I've arranged them, but I've also tried to make each chapter self-sufficient." Page 21 A history of language, as it relates to 6, reproduction, sexuality and politicians (the last chapter is on strumpets, whores, cheaters and bastards so fault me if I'm wrong.)
