Word Games

Word Games

by Graham King




This volume - with all sorts of games, from acrostics and tongue twisters, to puns and found poetry - should be a useful book for all word-game fanatics, from anagram and Countdown buffs, to parents seeking to improve their children's word skills, and crossword-solvers. From an early age, most of us stray from the discipline of learning what language is all about, and start to play with letters and words, whether punning through knock-knock jokes, learning enunciation through tongue-twisters, or discovering the delights of malapropisms and spoonerisms. "The Sunday Times Word Games" is a re-introduction to that world - when learning was a joy, and words were the key to all things.
