The most beautiful words can sound absolutely horrific when placed in an unfortunate mouth. But there are some words out there that cause the tongue to trip and the mind to disconnect. If you want to be able to pontificate on what you've read but aren't sure exactly how to pronounce that word that was probably on your SATs, The Big Book of Beastly Mispronunciations is for you.
A witty guide to the parts of speech that boggle the brain and the lips, The Big Book of Beastly Mispronunciations will simultaneously provide you with a new way to look at words on the page and more opportunities to wax eloquent (after all, is there nothing more embarrassing than pontificating on a subject that is unpronounceable to you?). Referencing popular culture from William Shakespeare to Jerry Seinfeld, this book is accessible and can help anyone get his mouth around tricky members of the lexicon.
