Wordstruck!: The Fun and Fascination of Language

In this fun and fascinating look at language and the cultures that create it, you'll find a new love for metaphor, a fabulous arsenal of fascinating word origins, a surprising cure for earworms, a joyful romp with everyone's favorite grammar errors, and a way to spot liars by listening to their words. You'll learn that color can be a language as foreign as Farsi, and that there are countless words in other languages that don't exist in English.

AUTHOR: Susanna Janssen is a foreign language educator, author, and newspaper columnist. She writes with heart and humor on all topics related to words, language, cultures, and travel. Susanna holds a Masters Degree in Spanish Literature from the University of California, and is an Emeritus Professor of Spanish at Mendocino College in Northern California.
