Later printing. From the cover: “This is a dictionary for professional writers and others who share Bremner’s commitment to stemming the onslaught of literary barbarism. Words on Words exposes common instances of bad gram- mar, inflated usage and misunderstood meaning. It returns to us such forgotten words as crepuscular, mumpsimus, and pitilacker, and gives new meaning to such colourful expressions as son-of-a-gun, gobbledygook and dry as dust.”
