Book summary

Does the continual influx of foreign words and phrases into the English language make you feel like a dummkopf? Does the proliferation of Greek and Latin leave you completely non compos mentis? Ça ne fait rien. Slough off that angst and stop that kvetching--this is no casus belli. With the assistance of Le Mot Juste, soon you, too, will be spewing mots justes ad hoc and sans souci. All it takes is a little chutzpah. Nota bene: next time you meet someone with a lapsus memoriae for sounds foreign, refrain from schadenfreude. We can't all be so au courant. --Jane Steinberg [via]
