The Lovereading4Kids comment

An entertaining introduction into some big words and what they mean. The approach is refreshing as there is no usual logic to the book, apart from the fact that words are listed alphabetically. Learning the meanings, usage and opposites of anything from Abashed to Zenith is both useful and fun.

Synopsis

Phenomenal! The Small Book of Big Words by Jonathan Meres

DISCOMBOBULATED Pronounced ~ dis-com-bob-u-lated. Means ~ thrown into confusion. As in ~ the lion is discombobulated by the skateboarding wildebeest. And ~ my parents are discombobulated when I suddenly start speaking Swedish.* A bit like ~ befuddled, bamboozled. Don't confuse with ~ anything. If you like this word, try ~ nincompoop. * This won't make any sense if you are actually Swedish.
