Interesting new book from Bok Login/Join

Hi folks - I'm back again Smile!

I've just been listening to a very interesting radio interview with Christian Bok who's written a new book entitled Eunoia in which each of the five chapters uses words with only the one vowel assigned to that chapter (only A for chapter 1, E for 2, etc.). It took him seven years to write and in this YouTube clip you can hear him reading extracts from the book. Fascinating.

For written extracts, see here.

Hmmm. I've noticed an errant "i" in the extracts from Chapter E. Tut, tut, tsk, tsk Smile.

I have posted a mono-vowel comment about a catapostrophe in one of the comments.

I liked the comment by Susan Harvey:

Brand - What a scandal! A daft prat! Sad, mad Brand. Sack!
Ross - No good! Fool. Clot. Stop Ross's work. Show Ross door. Bog off, Ross!

That will probably mean little to US readers, but there's a big fuss going on at the moment about some stupid calls made during a radio programme. See this story for the (current) situation.

What caught my attention was this headline:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/7701153.stm
Since when does "buck" denote British currency?

The buck wasn't meant as currency. See this.
