Words in Time and Place, Thesaurus

‘Words in Time and Place’ by David Crystal is all about exploring the English language through the centuries and finding out fascinating facts behind everyday words. For example, did you know the English language has over 150 words for the adjective ‘drunk’, developed over 1,000 years?

With the word cloud of ‘nose’ I found a surprising, fun and sophisticated way to convey the richness and versatility of the English language in a unique and eye-catching way.
