The Well-Spoken ThesaurusTom Heehler
The ultimate guide on how to speak eloquently, including 200 well-spoken alternatives to common words and phrases. If you've ever fumbled while trying to use a big word ('lofty word,' 'pretentious word') to impress a crowd, you know what it's like to ('know what it is to') be poorly spoken. The fear of mispronouncing or misusing complex words is real and leaves many of us consigned to the lower levels ('lower reaches,' 'lower echelons') of the English language. The secret to eloquence, however, lies in simplicity—the ability to use ordinary words in extraordinary ways. The Well-Spoken Thesaurus is your guide to eloquence, featuring lessons from some of the most articulate speakers of our past and present. While a common thesaurus provides only synonyms as mere word-for-word equivalents, The Well-Spoken Thesaurus is filled with ('awash in,' 'instilled with,' 'dense with,' 'rich in') dynamic reinventions of standard words and phrases. Lessons from history's greatest writers and speakers, including: •Margaret Atwood •Barack Obama •T. S. Eliot •Edith Wharton •Martin Luther King, Jr. •Henry James •Barbara Kingsolver •John Steinbeck The Well-Spoken Thesaurus is the ultimate vocabulary builder for adults seeking to improve their vocabulary and speak better.

Knickers in a TwistJonathan Bernstein
Don’t play the silly bugger in front of your mates! Take a deep dive into British language and culture with this “hilarious and entertaining” reference ( Chicago Tribune ). Brits and Americans dress the same, eat at the same chain restaurants, and pass music back and forth across the Atlantic, and our national leaders are practically conjoined twins. But the second the Brits open their mouths, all bets are off. So don’t dream of visiting the United Kingdom, dating a Brit, or truly understanding what Jude Law is saying without this handy, hilarious, and informative guide to Britspeak. With the cheekiness of Austin Powers and the tidbit quotient of Schott’s Miscellany , screenwriter Jonathan Bernstein’s collection of Cockney rhyming slang, insults culled from British television shows of yore, and regional and “high British” favorites provides hours of educational, enlightening, even life-saving hilarity. And if it doesn’t accomplish that, at least you’ll be aware that when a British citizen describes you as a “wally,” a “herbert,” a “spanner,” or a “bampot,” he’s not showering you with compliments. Knickers in a Twist is as indispensable as a London city guide, as spot-on funny as an episode of The Office , and as edifying as Born to Kvetch and Eats, Shoots and Leaves . “Indispensable.” — Vanity Fair “Will probably do more for revolutionizing the way you and your nearest and dearest address one another than any other book out this year . . . Often bring[s] an overt chuckle.” — Edge New York

As he leads the researcher through the multitude of resources that are now accessible online, he helps to answer these questions. He shows what the internet can and cannot do, and he warns against the various traps researchers can fall into along the way.As seen in Your Family Tree Magazine.
The Feminine MystiqueBetty Friedan
“If you’ve never read it, read it now.”—Arianna Huffington, O, The Oprah Magazine Landmark, groundbreaking, classic—these adjectives barely do justice to the pioneering vision and lasting impact of The Feminine Mystique. Published in 1963, it gave a pitch-perfect description of “the problem that has no name”: the insidious beliefs and institutions that undermined women’s confidence in their intellectual capabilities and kept them in the home. Writing in a time when the average woman first married in her teens and 60 percent of women students dropped out of college to marry, Betty Friedan captured the frustrations and thwarted ambitions of a generation and showed women how they could reclaim their lives. Part social chronicle, part manifesto, The Feminine Mystique is filled with fascinating anecdotes and interviews as well as insights that continue to inspire.

My Wife, I Love YouEric Scott
Nam Tue, come in! Nam Tue entered a cafe in the South after hearing the call of a college buddy, made her way to the dining table, turned around, and spotted a happy girl sitting by the window. She waved the girl over and rapidly proceeded towards the window. Danh Li, I sincerely apologize for keeping you waiting so long. Indeed, I have been waiting for you for the past five minutes. Danh Li, in a respectful manner, threatened with his hand. Nam Tue chuckled out loud after being taken aback, pushed back the chair, and took a seat. Why is it so easy for you to search for me today? It was her. You behave as if I'm equally as busy as you; in reality, it's you who is constantly busy. An Danh Li grumbled while rolling her eyes. Does Nam Tu work for PUB?

Okay, but the publisher also requested that Nam Tue pen a new book. Also, two episodes increase Nam Tue's workload. As a result, you haven't had a dinner like this together in a very long time.

Yonde Miyo-! Volume 1Clay Boutwell & Yumi Boutwell
Have you only recently learned hiragana but need practice? You’ve found the right book. Or perhaps, hiragana is no problem, but you want to build your hiragana and kanji reading comprehension? Ditto. If you are a beginner to upper beginner of Japanese, this new collection of stories is here to the rescue! Read real Japanese—beginner level but not boring Japanese! You won't find the Japanese version of Dick and Jane, but you will find stories written for adults. Enjoy reading flash fiction, super short essays, and funny stories of common mistakes made by learners of Japanese. Best of all, the only requirement is that you can read hiragana and have a very basic understanding of Japanese. Vocabulary and grammar will be defined and explained. Download free sound files of the stories read both slowly and at normal speed (link found on the last page) Every beginner-level story is presented in three ways: hiragana only (with spaces), Japanese with furigana, and full Japanese without furigana On each page, you'll find a complete glossary of the words with grammar and sentence structure explained For beginners (who have learned or are learning hiragana) The format is a little different from our other more advanced readers. The idea is for the reader to read the entire story three times. Each page will have a sentence or two in hiragana (with spaces between words for you to see “words” instead of syllables) at the top and that same content in full Japanese (with furigana—small hiragana over kanji) at the bottom. The middle will have the glossary and grammatical explanations. Lastly, the story is presented in Japanese without furigana. See if you can read it after going through the previous two versions and explanations. If you have just learned hiragana, you may want to listen to the sound file while reading the top hiragana section to practice correct pronunciation. If you have studied Japanese a bit longer, you may want to start with the bottom version and take note of the glossary for understanding. The glossary will have the word as it appears in the story, but it will also give the “dictionary” form so you can look the word up further. This volume includes the following stories: * えき Clay's Search for the Station * げんかん & CLAY’S SHOES * あおか、みどりか Is it Blue? Or Is it Green? * マイターン My Turn * なっとう Nattou * にほん の ゆきだるま Japanese Snowman * じどうはんばいき Japanese Vending Machines * マイカー My Car * しまぐに Island Country * にほん の がっこう Japanese Schools Having fun while learning a language is a great way to increase motivation. With increased motivation, you are less likely to skip a day's study. A skipped day can quickly become a skipped week and then a skipped… forever. And so, we hope you will have as much fun reading these stories as we had writing them.
