Rawson's Dictionary of Euphemisms and Other Doubletalk

About this book

Rawson's Dictionary of Euphemisms and Other DoubletalkHugh Rawson explains, in clear language, what it means when we talk of an unusual occurrence, a crew transfer container, or Montezuma's revenge. If you have ever been baffled by the expression culturally deprived, or want to know where the phrase deep-six comes from, then this book will certainly be of service.
