    Himbo: a male bimbo. Protire: leave a boring job to do something more interesting. Sheeple: people who follow the crowd. These are just a few of the newly evolved words discussed and explained in The Birds and Bees of Words, an entertaining, informative look at the ever-changing nature of the English language. More than 1,000 words are featured on the book's list of new and inventive words; nearly 30,000 more words are discussed in sections including a look at word roots and how they are used in modern language; a list of words that are commonly misspelled or misunderstood; and a style guide to usage rules and how and why they can be broken. Anyone who is intrigued by language, who is fascinated by words, or who simply wants to use our language clearly and effectively will enjoy The Birds and Bees of Words.
