For word lovers: Ads-l member Allan Metcalf has recently published a book titled _From Skedaddle To Selfie: Words of the Generations_, Oxford University Press. The numerous entries include  doggie bag, dude, G.I., groovy, hot dog, gerrymander, groovy, jazz, nerd, O.K. rock and roll, senior moment, skedaddle, teeny bopper, tooth fairy, zoot suit, etc. etc. etc.

Maybe Allan would like to say a few words (no pun intended) about his work on this project.

Btw, I have no financial connection to this book.
