Forgotten English Calendar, Daily Boxed, Pomegranate
Perennially popular language historian Jeffrey Kacirk again revives long-lost words for our pleasure and edification. This delightful compilation surveys intriguing terms and phrases that have fallen by the wayside (e.g., curiosities such as pediluvium, "a sort of bath for the feet") and gives a brief historical background for each. Accompanied by obscure feast days, quotations, anecdotes, and other tidbits, these 313 entries (Saturdays and Sundays share a page) will delight anyone who loves language and history. This 2006 Daily Boxed calendar was published by Pomegranate.
