Drawing from his "Speaking of Language" columns written for The Montreal Gazette, Howard Richler invites readers to enjoy the pleasures of exploring the English language - which is rapidly becoming the world's lingua franca. Among other things, Richler traces how foreign words invaded the English language over the centuries, and how people's names came into existence. Richler completes his tour of English with a special section on Canadian English. Take My Words also contains many entertaining puzzles, quizzes and word games to challenge readers' skills.
