The Grandiloquent Dictionary

£3.99

Product description

"The astucious, rubiginous fox soodled over the delitescent dog."

Now you can move up to a more elegant vocabulary - with words that sound better, mean better, and let you insult people without their knowing it! The Grandiloquent Dictionary is a genuine vocabulary-builder as well as a vastly entertaining excursion to the dazzling outer limits of the English language - and a book you'll want for repeated browsing and reference.

1972 illustrated paperback edition, in good condition. Faint discolouration on the edges of the cover, and faint staining of the page block. Previous owners' names written inside front page in thin black biro.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
