The Painted Word: A Treasure Chest of Remarkable Words.... with author Phil Cousineau
Author Phil Cousineau takes us on a tour into the obscure territory of word origins with great erudition and endearing curiosity. The words themselves range from commonplace—like biscuit, a twice-baked cake for Roman soldiers—to loanwords including “chaparral,” from the Basque shepherds who came to the American West; words from myths, such as “hector. Whether ancient or brand new, all the words included in The Painted Word reveal the deep history and mystery of words and language.
