Howard Richler

As a child, Howard could often be found furtively reading a dictionary. When word nerdiness became more acceptable, he began to share his fascination, and to date he has written seven books on a variety of language themes.

These books include:

  • The Dead Sea Scroll Palindromes
  • Take My Words: A Wordaholic’s Guide to the English Language
  • A Bawdy Language: How a Second-Rate Language Slept Its Way to the Top
  • Global Mother Tongue: The Eight Flavours of English
  • Can I Have a Word With You?
  • Strange Bedfellows: The Private Lives of Words

His most recent book is titled From Happy to Homosexual, and Other Mysterious Semantic Shifts in which he examines how words change meanings.

Howard lives with his partner Carol and their wheaten terrier Molly. He has two kids Jeremy and Jennifer, and two grandkids Judah and near palindrome Maya.
