Summary of the Book
Winner of the HRH Duke of Edinburgh English Speaking Union English Language Book
Award 2006.


An award winning language book, this is a lively and engaging exposé on the foreign
words and phrases that populate our language.


Each entry gives a translation of the expression, the language of
origin, pronunciation, an insightful comment on usage, plus
illuminating examples from the press. A Pretentiousness Index will help
you avoid committing the ultimate faux pas(!).


If you have ever been bamboozled by the use of a foreign word or
phrase, or simply want to spice up your vocabulary with some well chosen bons mots,
then this is the book for you. Thousands of foreign terms have been absorbed into the
English language from the everyday (kowtow) to the relatively obscure (auto-da-fe). Faux
Pas? focuses on familiar terms and expressions as well as those that are new, curious
or amusing.
