About The Book

A collection of Word Power quizzes and other fun language and grammar facts that will appeal to word nerds, knowledge hunters, and students of all ages.

Want to sound smarter in business meetings? Finally beat your brainy uncle at Word Cookies? Ace that standardized test?

Whatever your reasons for wanting to improve your vocabulary, you won’t find a funner way of doing so than Word Power (and yes, “funner” is really a word!).

For instance, do you know what these words mean:
  1. Orthoepy – A: code. B: proper pronunciation. C: sign language.
  2. Zyzzyva – A: type of weevil. B: tricky situation. C: fertilized cell
  3. Sinistral – A: from the south. B: underground. C: left-handed

And do you know where to place your apostophers, when it's okay to start a sentence with “But,” and which one word, repeated eight times, makes a complete sentence?

Word Power will answer all these questions and much more for hours of language fun for word nerds and grammar gurus.

[Answers to the quiz above: 1) B; 2) A; 3) C.]
