Author Lon Gibson has always loved words. Since seventh grade English, he has understood the concept of the economy of words. Like peeling an orange or cutting hair too long, cutting down excess verbiage gives him pleasure. In his book made available through Xlibris, Suitcase Words, Gibson introduces readers to a new set of evolved words.
With the world changing so rapidly, elements of society becoming more unpredictable, and politicians committing unimaginable offenses, both political and personal, there exists much fertile terrain for new words to describe these phenomena. Why use four words to describe a crooked politician when people can do it with one?
Suitcase words, like a suitcase which opens into two sections, have two parts. Suitcase words define, in one word, two qualities or actions which occur together. “Accidentist,” meaning incompetent dentist, is taken from the words accident and dentist. Calling the Obama administration a burgeoning socialist welfare state might be fun, but eventually it becomes a “charitocrasy.” Barney Frank’s blustering concern for the credit-burdened home buyer becomes “sanctimonotonous.”
A book of political double words, Suitcase Words is really an interesting dictionary. Some words are funny, others are just very appropriate. Some words have accompanying pictures while others are only listed in alphabetical order. All entries are followed by the breakdown of the words and a commentary.
Suitcase Words is enrolled in Xlibris’ Bookstore Returnability Program, which gives booksellers the convenient option of returning excess stocks through Ingram Distribution. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
