ZOUNDS! : A Browser's Dictionary of Interjections
by Mark Dunn, Sergio Aragones
Paperback: 240 pages
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin (March 1, 2005)
>From Geronimo! to gesundheit to haminahamina to holy mackerel, and from
abracadabra to zoinks, Mark Dunn and Sergio Aragonés show you interjections
like you've never seen them before.
Often thought of as unnecessary verbal fringe or simply linguistic
decoration, interjections (ahem, howdy, mamma mia, pshaw, tally-ho,
whoop-de-do) may well be the most overlooked part of speech in the English
language. ZOUNDS! A Browser's Dictionary of Interjections focuses the
spotlight on this most deserving (and sometimes most demented) grammatical
group. A light-hearted look at more than 500 interjections, ZOUNDS! explores
the origins of these essential words and highlights the contributions of
these previously unheralded parts of speech.
Perfect for both word lovers and the casual reader, ZOUNDS! brings together
the linguistic talents of Mark Dunn, author of the award-winning novel Ella
Minnow Pea, and the graphic hilarity of Sergio Aragonés, the legendary
cartoonist and contributor to Mad Magazine, for a delightful romp through
grammar, culture, and the English language.
