Summary

A new type of dictionary. An indispensable reference for language learners within the Indo-European language family, as well as for any who love words and want to deepen their understanding of English, or any of these other languages. 
This dictionary records words from 32 languages, covering eight of the nine living branches of the Indo-European language ‘tree’. These languages are English, Old English, Frisian, Dutch, German, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Norse, Welsh, Irish, Latin, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian, Ancient Greek, Modern Greek, Lithuanian, Latvian, Russian, Polish, Czech, Slovak, Macedonian, Albanian, Sanskrit, Hindi, Persian, Pashto. Of these, the Germanic and Romance languages are covered far more completely and deeply, with nearly 32,000 of the 40,000 words in the dictionary belonging to these groups. 
The dictionary consists of two parts. The first part contains the pages for each Proto-Indo-European word (the root word), showing cognates in the chosen languages plus various descendants and derivatives. These pages are arranged thematically, allowing you to browse or study. Search is enabled by the second part to the dictionary, which contains a separate index for each language, telling you where to find each word.

    Viva la Repartee - Clever...

    For most of us, that perfect retort or witty reply often escapes us when we need it most, only to come to mind with perfect clarity when it's too late to be useful. The twentieth-century writer Heywood Broun described this all-too-common phenomenon when he wrote "Repartee is what we wish we'd said." 
    In Viva la Repartee, Dr. Mardy Grothe, author of Oxymoronica, has lovingly assembled a collection of masterfully composed -- and perfectly timed -- replies that have turned the tables on opponents and adversaries. This delightful volume is a celebration of the most impressive retorts, ripostes, rejoinders, comebacks, quips, ad-libs, bon mots, off-the-cuff comments, wisecracks, and other clever remarks ever to come out of the mouths -- and from the pens -- of people throughout history. Touching on all areas of human endeavor, including politics, the arts, literature, sports, relationships, and even the risqué, the book features contributions from Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, Dorothy Parker, Mae West, Groucho Marx, Winston Churchill, Dolly Parton, and scores more. 
    As entertaining as it is intellectually enriching, Viva la Repartee is sure to capture the attention of language lovers and is the perfect antidote for anyone who's ever thought I wish I'd said that!

    Preview:
     
    Malcolm Gladwell’s David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants is a book about perceived disadvantage. People with few resources or certain disadvantages may seem weak and unlikely to win. However, in many cases, the same factors that make underdogs seem weak gives them built-in advantages. Underdogs are much more likely to win than people think.
     
    In the biblical battle between David and the giant Goliath, David won because he refused to play by the rules of the powerful. He used a deadly sling rather than engaging in honorable hand-to-hand combat. The weak often feel free to adopt scrappy, unexpected tactics that the powerful disdain. As a result, powerful nations are often defeated by insurgencies.
     
    A major problem for Goliath-like forces is that oppression and the application of violence can lead to greater and more effective resistance. Government rule always depends on some level of legitimacy and…
