¿De dónde viene l. a. palabra «adefesio»? ¿Cómo los angeles palabra «chusma» puede venir del griego, donde significaba «orden»? ¿Por qué «hortera»se ha convertido en un insulto? Las palabras encierran una curiosa historia que narra su viaje en el tiempo y en el espacio, y el español es especialmente rico en historias de palabras. La historia de nuestra lenga está llena de préstamos del latín, el griego, el árabe, el vasco, el francés o el inglés, que se han adaptado en su forma y muchas veces también en su significado. Por otra parte, los angeles expansión del español en el mundo, especialmente en América, ha hecho que muchas palabras cobren significados propios en otros países.A través de three hundred ejemplos curiosos y sorprendentes recorremos el viaje de las palabras desde su origen hasta sus usos actuales.
