About the Book

Put your vocabulary skills to the test with this witty and engaging book.

Improve Your Word Power is primarily a collection of multiple-choice challenges in which the reader is asked to decide which definition of a given word is correct. But it’s actually so much more than that. Each topic is themed – from words borrowed from French to words about colours; words from Shakespeare to words that sound alike – and the answers are wonderfully informative and accessible, each giving readers the chance to say ‘Gosh! I didn’t know that!’ even with quite familiar words.

Interspersed throughout are boxes that feature odd definitions, confusable words and fun facts that make the language come to life.

Written by Sunday Times bestselling author Caroline Taggart, this is a book that is aimed at readers who want to improve their vocabulary for the sheer enjoyment of it – and have fun doing so.

About the Author

Caroline Taggart worked in publishing as an editor of popular non-fiction for thirty years before being asked by Michael O'Mara Books to write I Used to Know That, which became a Sunday Times bestseller. Following that she was co-author of My Grammar and I (or should that be 'Me'?), and wrote a number of other books about words and English usage. She has appeared frequently on television and on national and regional radio, talking about language, grammar and whether or not Druids Cross should have an apostrophe.
