My Grammar and I offers amusing examples of awful grammar, while steering you in the direction of grammatical greatness. Refreshing everything you should have learnt at school and more, My Grammar and I is informative yet entertaining - an ideal buy for any English language enthusiast.
How on earth did 'with bells on' come to express enthusiasm? And what do chips on shoulders have to do with inferiority complexes? Spilling the Beans on the Cat's Pyjamas provides us with the meanings of these well-worn and much-loved phrases by putting these linguistic quirks in context, and explaining how and why they were first used.
Ever find yourself struggling to remember simple facts and rules? Is the ever-increasing pace of life and glut of information challenging your memory? This is the definitive guide to help you to unjumble your mind and improve your ability to recall names, dates, facts, figures and events, and contains all the mnemonics you'll ever need to know.
Proverbs are short, well-known, pithy sayings that offer advice or words of encouragement and are used in everyday English without much thought ever being given to their meanings, or indeed, usefulness. Caroline Taggart explores the truth behind our favourite proverbs, their history and proves that they are as useful today as they ever were.
The English language is jam-packed with wonderful verses that we've all heard at some point, but probably forgotten. I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud helps us remember all those long-forgotten poems that we were taught at school, together with short biographies of the poets and introductions to the poems themselves.
Information is broken down into manageable bite-sized chunks, refreshing your memory of all those things you once knew but have forgotten, and filling you in on the bits that the school syllabus didn't include. From building the pyramids in Egypt to the fall of the Berlin Wall, everything you used to know - and much that you didn't - is here.
Each subject is presented in short, self-contained 'articles', designed to be dipped into on the readers whim. Concise and authoritative, Remember, Remember makes history interesting and accessible for everyone once again.
A Classical Education provides many of the classical facts that modern schooling leaves out. Perfect for parents who wish to teach their children and for those who would like to learn or relearn the facts themselves, A Classical Education is informative and educational, but above all accessible.
