The perfect present for word-lovers: a word for every day of the year.The perfect present for word-lovers: a word for every day of the year.
'Susie Dent is a one-off. She breathes life and fun into words and language' Pam Ayres

'Susie Dent is a national treasure' Richard Osman

Welcome to a year of wonder through the English language with Susie Dent, lexicographer extraordinaire and queen of Countdown's Dictionary Corner.

From Turning a Blind Eye (Nelson putting the telescope to his missing eye to ignore the order to stop fighting) to why May Day became a distress call; from stealing someone's thunder to the real Jack the Lad, from tartle (forgetting someone's name) to snaccident (unintentionally eating a whole packet of biscuits), WORD PERFECT is her brilliant linguistic almanac full of unforgettable true stories tied to every day of the year. You'll never be lost for words again.
