Description : The Man had only once followed her home in the evening, after she had been to a Blue Moon concert with Claire and Viv. Still, Elaine was not frightened. It amused her to have an admirer who was far too timid to approach. On that evening, she had been tempted to give him a fright, to swing round and confront him. Or she might look down from the top of the bank and ask him if he had now seen everything he wanted. But that would be like breaking the rules of a private game. Then, perhaps, The Man might become dangerous ... 'The book shows a bleak and unprepossessing gallery of villainous talent' Punch

Description : This volume represents a unique collection of chapters on the way in which color is categorized and named in a number of languages. Although color research has been a topic of focus for researchers for decades, the contributions here show that many aspects of color language and categorization are as yet unexplored, and that current theories and methodologies which investigate color language are still evolving. Some core questions addressed here include: How is color conceptualized through language? What kind of linguistic tools do languages use to describe color? Which factors tend to bias color language? What methodologies could be used to understand human color categorization and language better? How do color vocabularies evolve? How does context impact the color cognition? The chapters collected here adopt different theoretical and methodological approaches in describing new empirical research on how the concept of color is represented in a variety of different languages. Researchers in linguistics, psychology, and cognitive science present a set of new explorations and challenges in the area of color language. The book promotes several methodological and disciplinary dimensions to color studies. The color category is given an in-depth and broad-based examination, so a reader interested in color conceptualization for itself will be able to form a solid vision of the subject.

Description : Tea-Maven Theodosia Browning brews up trouble in the latest Tea Shop Mystery from New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs. Tea maven Theodosia Browning and her tea sommelier Drayton Conneley are guests at a bird hunt styled in the precise manner of an English shooting party. Which means elevenses (sloe gin fizzes), gun loaders, the drawing of pegs, fine looking bird dogs, and shooting costumes of tweed, herringbone, and suede. But as gunshots explode like a riff of Black Cat firecrackers, another shot sounds too close for comfort to Theodosia and Drayton. Intrigued but worried, Theodosia wanders into the neighbor's lavender field where she discovers their host, Reginald Doyle, bleeding to death. His wife, Meredith, is beside herself with grief and begs Theodosia and Drayton to stay the night. But Theodosia awakens at 2:00A.M. to find smoke in her room and the house on fire. As the fire department screams in and the investigating sheriff returns, Meredith again pleads with Theodosia for help. As Theodosia investigates, fingers are pointed, secrets are uncovered, Reginald's daughter-in-law goes missing presumed drowned, and Meredith is determined to find answers via a séance. All the while Theodosia worries if she's made a mistake in inviting a prime suspect to her upscale Lavender Lady Tea. INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES AND TEA TIME TIPS!

The second half, A Game of Soldiers, is a Whitehall farce taking place in St James's Palace. The same dramatist has brought his complete play to be censored but The Lord Chamberlain's Men have a few shameful secrets of their own to hide, including a priapic guardsman.

Description : Lilian lives in an isolated island community at the mouth of Tory Channel trying to make the best of a life that has at its core a secret grief. It is 1938 and for three months of every year the men take to the sea to hunt whales with fast boats and explosive harpoons. This year, the whales aren't the only ones returning - Lilian's troubled son Micky has come home too. In this rugged, unsettled world, things are not always what they seem.'The Blue creates in glowing detail both a community and a place, and tells a richly atmospheric and suspenseful story. It's a novel of delicacy when it treats the interior life of its characters but it also has absolute confidence when summoning the physical world. This is an involving, rewarding book made with care and skill and gusto.' Damien Wilkins'The Blue is a fine piece of work which I immensely enjoyed reading. It is imaginatively conceived, cleverly structured and written in an elegant and considered style, often with great beauty in its phrasing and imagery.' Fiona Kidman

Description : Did you know that Jedburgh Justice is ‘executing someone first, then giving them a trial’? Or that Kentish Fire is ‘applauding sarcastically to silence your opponents’? From the author of Haggard Hawks and Paltry Poltroons, this is a fascinating collection of curious phrases and expressions from the English language, together with the stories of their etymology and anecdotes about their use in history.

Description : An idiom is a group of words the actual meaning of which cannot easily be predicted from the specific meanings of the component words. Both the English and Russian languages are highly idiomatic. The use of idioms is natural to the speakers of a particular language, but has less or even no meaning to the speakers of another language. However, in any colloquial language there are also a host of overlapping idiomatic expressions, proverbs, phrases, and sayings which stretch the idiom definition. Moreover, there are often alternative words for certain words in an idiom, some idioms have more than one meaning, and extensive groupings have been made under certain major verbs and nouns. All these variations are given in this dictionary. This volume contains the most comprehensive dictionary of English to Russian and equivalent Russian to English idioms available worldwide today. There are in total about 10,000 entries of different idioms, but many have several alternatives in their groupings, which makes the overall total several times that number.
