Sobre o livro
THE HILARIOUS NEW DICTIONARY FOR THE LOCKDOWN AGEWith a new normal comes a new language, and a need for new definitions. Enter Colin Nugent, a man on a mission to help out in our time of need.Colin has unearthed hundreds of neglected, obsolete and forgotten words of old and given them new definitions in keeping with a world in lockdown.From animalcule, which used to mean 'a microscopic animal' and is now defined as 'that part of a jumper or cardigan used to open a door or gateway, in the belief that it might afford protection against Covid-19'......to zounds, a word which once referred to 'an expression of surprise', and now means 'a number of joggers struggling to socially isolate on a narrow footpath and ending in a log jam'.Colin's Repurposed New English Dictionary is an essential, and very funny, reference work for the 'new normal'. What's more, all profits go to the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Urgent Appeal in honour of the Captain Tom fund.
