Summary "Track the trends across 105 years of language innovation with this account of words we now take for granted but which were once linguistic newcomers." "Movers and Shakers is an updated and recast edition of 20th Century Words, first published in 1999. John Ayto paints a picture of each decade of the twentieth century through its new vocabulary, and looks at the first new arrivals of the twenty-first century."--BOOK JACKET
