chapters, prolific professor Crystal celebrates words, covering their form, meaning, and evolution Arguing that we are all, in fact, wordsmiths, Crystal makes his point by noting that their own vocabularies are far larger than most people realize Although most people would guess that they use from 5,000 to 20,000 words, it is unusual to find anyone with an active vocabulary of less than 35,000 words, according to Crystal He goes on to describe how we learn new words, the creation of dictionaries, the origins of words, and the borrowings from foreign languages than 350 that form part of the modern English vocabulary Other chapters cover spelling, pronunciation, dialect, slang, and word games and wordplay A final section, Becoming a Word Detective, is a collection of online and
