Common Three Letter Words
Jan 07, J. I have really strong feelings that this book is terrible. And I'm pretty sure I could do a better job in three weeks with access to google. So here's my review: The Good: Nice typography.
The Bad: So, Craig Conley and I need to have a discussion about what constitutes a "dictionary," or, more specifically, what constitutes a "definition. When I say, "Let p represent the statement 'Men are mortal. In fact I have really strong feelings that this book is terrible. Apparently, Conley would have us believe those are all definitions of x.
Also, the letter B does not mean the sound of the letter B, nor the shape of the letter B, nor a printer's block which looks like a letter B. Those are all definitions for anything, like: Pig - the sound of the word 'pig. Pig - a block with a pig on it. I mean, we do use words this way colloquially, but that's certainly not the same as a definition.
But note that putting those definitions for all 26 letters certainly pads the page count! Wink wink. Also, any accidental usage of letters as counting objects shouldn't really count unless they're extremely common. So: D as a grade I'm ok with, but D as 'the fourth object, when things are lettered' I'm not. The book is also full of weird hippy, new-age-y usage. Finally, in the field I'm most familiar with, mathematics, the author does a ridiculously laughable job.
He apparently picked up some random math book it was a matrix math book , found sentences like, "We'll use Q to represent upper-triangular matrices," then uses that as a definition. Of course, variable usage, again, does not constitute a definition unless it's VERY standard. So, x for horizontal location on a plane is probably ok.

In one particularly funny instance, he didn't even bother to figure out what the book said: he just put: "P [or whatever] - a matrix with certain properties. Is that how we define things now? Car - a vehicle of some sort.
Cow - some type of animal. Dictionary - a book with certain types of words in it. It's just infantile. To further condemn the math usage, mathematicians have a very standard set of special typographical symbols for certain common sets, like natural, rational, and real numbers and others.
For instance, for the integers, we use a special Z which has a double vertical slant. It's typographically pretty, a Z, and only has one meaning. Isn't that exactly the kind of thing that should be in this book? Alas, it is not. Surely this book is a joke, right?

Something for my word collection. This is a bed side book that will be read off and on again. Apr 19, James Swenson rated it liked it. Especially useful if you need to check the spelling. A very good reference work for writers and everyone in love with languages; how would I know that you can have so many words with just one letter?
Of course, some of the definitions seem very obvious - and, to be honest, there were moments I felt like the author was cheating or making fun of me, due to the redundancy of some of the definitions. But this was just a fleeting impression; you will be impressed with the variety of sources from Dickens and Balzac to Hugo and Georges Perec, and that's A very good reference work for writers and everyone in love with languages; how would I know that you can have so many words with just one letter?
But this was just a fleeting impression; you will be impressed with the variety of sources from Dickens and Balzac to Hugo and Georges Perec, and that's only in the literary sphere he uses as examples. I was impressed and convinced. A beautiful, useful book indeed. Nov 28, Hansen Wendlandt rated it it was ok. An interesting idea like this has promise; and there are some gems worth remembering.
But overall, the book is a bit of a disappointment.
