Hi, folks! Dane here, and I have some exciting news for you today. It’s publishing day for The Lexicologist’s Handbook, my brand new book!
The Lexicologist’s Handbook is essentially a dictionary of strange and unusual words, and it’s the latest in a series of books that I’ve worked on with my core publishing team of editor Pam Elise Harris and cover designer Larch Gallagher. It’s out now in paperback and electronic formats and you can learn more about it below.
That’s because The Lexicologist’s Handbook is a dictionary with a difference, a reference book that’s packed to the seams with strange and unusual words. Check out the cover and the blurb below.
Pronunciation: Lec-sic-ol-oh-jist Type: Noun
Definition: A student of language, particularly the components of language such as the nature or meaning of words. Also, a compiler or writer of a dictionary.
Example: The lexicologist was overjoyed to discover that lugubrious† is a word.
Whether you’re an author, a poet, a songwriter or a student, The Lexicologist’s Handbook will introduce you to words that you’ve never heard before and change the way that you look at language.
Like a traditional dictionary but with the boring words left out, The Lexicologist’s Handbook will help you to broaden your vocabulary and impress your friends while entertaining you along the way. It’s the perfect book for all lexophiles.
The fun thing about The Lexicologist’s Handbook is that it’s a project that I’ve been working on for over ten years, with work beginning back when I was at university. It’s exciting to finally have it out in print and available to the public!
As always, thanks so much for all of your support and be sure to give me a follow on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram for more. You can also find out more about my books on Amazon and Goodreads. Happy reading!
