Book Review #2- The meaning of liff

A cute book which contains words which we don’t have words for 🙂 A collection of universal experiences which are never discussed.
Best explained with a few examples-

Boothby Graffoe (n.)
The man in the pub who slaps people on the back as if they were old friends, when in fact he has no friends, largely on account of this habit.

Burwash (n.)

The pleasurable cool sloosh of puddle water over the toes of your gumboots.
