'Simply and concisely, it clarifies hundreds of words and phrases from Greek, Latin, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, and Yiddish that have become part of the English language but are often confused or misused.
Along with its definition, every term is accompanied by a phonetic guide to its pronunciation. plus, there's an appendix of words derived from classical mythology - such as delphic, erotic, laconic, odyssey, and thespian - and two comprehensive lists of Greek and Latin prefixes and suffixes.'
