Book Review

How many different ways can you play with words? More than 1,200, according to Dave Morice in what he claims is the first Dictionary of Wordplay. Everyone's heard of the rebus and the palindrome, but what about the megallege and the word worm? In an informative and frisky introduction, Morice describes the history of wordplay including the golden age, which started around 1960 and continues to this day. This is a quirky reference book, great to dip into, and packed with amazing wordplay: everything from anagrams, bananagrams, and flip-flop definitions to Kangaroo words, no-word alphabets, stinky buzzwords, truthful numbers, and zazzifications!
