Susie Dent is here to take children on a rip-roaring tour through some of the most astonishing, amusing and sometimes quite revolting backgrounds of English words. Did you know, for instance, that ‘fizzle’ originally meant to break wind silently? Over time, it came to describe a weak, spluttering, hissing sound. And you might think that ‘ain’t’ isn’t a word you should use, but it is thought the word was once used by kings and queens. As Susie Dent knows, even the most ordinary-sounding word can have the most extraordinary story behind it.
