Euphonics: A Poet's Dictionary of Sounds

Euphonics is the study of the natural meanings of sounds in words and language, first discussed over 2,000 years ago in Plato's 'Cratylus'.  In this light-hearted look at the incantatory power of the sounds of the English language you can learn about the deadly effects of 'D', the ghastly glint of 'G', the jolly jangle of 'J', the binary bulge of 'B' and seductive slippery 'S'. This deceptively simple book, by 'leading wizard' John Michell, and illustrated by Fleet Street cartoonist Merrily Harpur, is the best manual an apprentice could wish for in casting these powerful spells.
