Jolly Wordlings brings together a host of excruciating howlers and painful puns in a collection crammed with fun. Most of the humour arises from the words themselves - a change of stress, a little false pronunciation or a bit of strategic misspelling will tease the laughter out of even the most solemn expressions. And D. H. Elliott does just that, though - be warned - sometimes the laughter turns to groans! Wordplay, or paronomasia, as it is sometimes called can be infectious. When you've sampled the 'Jolly Mixtures' and chuckled over the 'Daftinitions', words will never seem the same again, and the irresistible desire to pun may have claimed another victim.
