Winner of the HRH Duke of Edinburgh English Speaking Union English Language Book Award 2006. An award winning language book, this is a lively and engaging expose on the foreign words and phrases that populate our language.Each entry gives a translation of the expression, the language oforigin, pronunciation, an insightful comment on usage, plusilluminating examples from the press. A Pretentiousness Index will helpyou avoid committing the ultimate faux pas(!). If you have ever been bamboozled by the use of a foreign word orphrase, or simply want to spice up your vocabulary with some well chosen bons mots, then this is the book for you. Thousands of foreign terms have been absorbed into the English language from the everyday (kowtow) to the relatively obscure (auto-da-fe). Faux Pas? focuses on familiar terms and expressions as well as those that are new, curious or amusing.
