About the Author

Susie Dent is a writer and broadcaster on language. She is the resident lexicographer on Channel 4's long-running game show, 'Countdown'.


"Fanous marries a love of the English language with striking eighteenth-century engravings. . . . It's difficult to select favorites but how about 'a crash of rhinoceroses, ' 'a mischief of mice, ' and 'a piddle of puppies'? Each of about 125 collective nouns is paired with an illustration by Thomas Bewick, a famed naturalist engraver." -- (12/28/2015)
