Get Up and Go

Author: Jim McDonald
Publisher: Dundurn
ISBN: 9781550029734
Release Date: 2003-04-01
Genre: Health & Fitness

There are many books directed at those who are retired or about to retire, and most of them focus on financial matters, food and nutrition, or the best place to settle down. Most fitness books are written for the serious fitness enthusiast, not your average Canadian annuitant. This is a book with a different goal. Get Up and Go motivates those 50 and over to become more physically fit and mentally active. Why? So they can live longer, stay healthy, feel good, and enjoy life. And best of all, the authors are speaking from first-hand experience: if it’s in the book, it’s a reflection of their own personal lifestyle. Whether the reader’s main interest is fitness, genealogy, volunteering, crafts, the computer, or the learning journey, every chapter is packed with reliable information and interesting tips to help make the most of life.

African American Slang

Author: Maciej Widawski
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781316240618
Release Date: 2015-03-05
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

In this pioneering exploration of African American slang - a highly informal vocabulary and a significant aspect of African American English - Maciej Widawski explores patterns of form, meaning, theme and function, showing it to be a rule-governed, innovative and culturally revealing vernacular. Widawski's comprehensive description is based on a large database of contextual citations from thousands of contemporary sources, including literature and the press, music, film and television. It also includes an alphabetical glossary of 1,500 representative slang expressions, defined and illustrated by 4,500 usage examples. Due to its vast size, the glossary can stand alone as a dictionary providing readers with a reliable reference of terms. Combining scholarship with user-friendliness, this book is an insightful and practical resource for students and researchers in linguistics and general readers interested in exploring lexical variation in contemporary English.
