"Strange Bedfellows: Fun with Etymology" - Etymology Book Offers Fun Puns & Plays on Words

By: Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Co, LLC
PERTH, Australia - March 18, 2020 - PRLog -- Etymology studies the origin of words and the ways in which their meanings have changed over the years. Molding word play into humorous phrases provides the foundation for this book's fun stories, nonsense, and satire.

"Strange Bedfellows: Fun with Etymology" is a book for adults. It is also a humorous follow-up to the author's previous book – aimed at all ages – "Silly Animal Rhymes and Stories A to Z." This new book follows the further adventures of Dr. Duck, Fred, and other characters from the previous book.

Here are a few of the book's surprisingly related fun puns:

Surly senile senators, latent lethargy, environment veers, wistful win wish, and zero gusto.

Etymologically related words can be used to construct amusing or amazing pairs, phrases, and whole sentences. This book's pairings are accompanied by silly or satirical comments, tall tales, poems, fake news and fake ads, featuring the charming illustrations of Kalpart. An appendix provides other pairs of surprisingly related words.

"Strange Bedfellows is a wonderfully wondrous book that shows etymology at its cleverest. Author Anil is a wordplay genius. This is an enchanting, unique, and hilarious book." – Dave Morice, prominent Iowa poet and wordplay expert

"If you like plays on words, this is the book for you. Etymologically speaking, Strange Bedfellows is a very funny book, cleverly using words that are historically connected. We are proud to announce its release." – Robert Fletcher, CEO, Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency
