Why Is an Apple a Pomme?

Read
183 printed pages
Now, for the first time you can find out about that foreign word which has puzzled you. No one has written a book like this before. It is not a dictionary. Nor is it an etymological treatise. It is light-hearted company for the traveller, regular or occasional, whose curiosity has been aroused by the variety and diversity of the Western European languages. In a short quick style it offers some explanations. The words chosen are those, which the traveller is most likely to come across, in the train, at the airport, on the road and in hotels and restaurants. It is the perfect conversation opener on your travels. Why DO the French call an apple a pomme?

“Amusing, erudite, intriguing and useful…
The ideal travel companion for exploring Europe.”

­—Loyd Grossman
