This is quite a fun little book, a self-proclaimed “language lover’s guide to choregasms, povertunity, brattling, and 250 other much-needed terms for the modern world.” Now, I’m not going to explain what those words mean, and I’m not going to tell you any of the others – if you want to know that, you’ll just have to go out and get it.
I don’t think this is a must-have, but it’s a pretty good laugh and a good way to pass the time on your commute. And there is one good thing about it – these are all inventions, and Lizzie doesn’t try to pass off existing neologisms as her own.
