KIRKUS REVIEW

From half a billion words read and more than one million quotations collected, ""a lexical index"" of some 5000 words which entered the English language (British, American, Canadian) between 1963 and 1972 -- some technical (""quark""), some cultural (""discotheque""), some political (""radical chic""), some slang (""scag""), some linguistic invention (""disambiguate""), some inevitable coinage (""skyjacking""). Cool -- in every respect.
