Most of us never realize how many words and expressions used in everyday English have a fascinating nautical origin. This charming pocketbook explains the practical ship-board beginnings of over 200 such phrases-colorful, bizarre and surprising-and how they came ashore. For anyone with an interest in the sea & its traditions-landlubbers, boaters, historians, linguists.
