If you can’t wait for the sequel to Kök & Tvätt…


I have a new book out today on Kindle at Amazon. It’s a bit of a departure – and maybe only I think it’s funny (though Kathryn does too…)

A Knee Dictionary of Modern English Yeesidge

“English vowels are going sideways! It’s not the first time, either. Just after Chaucer turned up his toes, people stopped saying “erse” and started saying … well, you know. The Great English Vowel Shift has kept generations of linguistics undergrads sniggering ever since.
Now, where people used to say “oo” they’re saying “ee”. “Bad news” becomes “bad knees”. As you can imagine, this can cause some confusion and unnecessary joint replacement. This little dictionary is designed to guide you through the difficulties. Pretty seen, yee’ll be a fleeant yeeser of Modern English!”
