Language, in its communicative and playful functions, its literary formations and its shifting meanings, is a perennially fascinating topic. C.S. Lewis's Studies in Words explores this fascination by taking a series of words and teasing out their connotations, using examples from a vast range of English literature, recovering lost meanings and analysing their functions. It doubles as a study of verbal communication, its pleasures and problems. The issues revealed are considered essential to all who read and communicate thoughtfully.
