A certain je ne sais quoi looks at words and phrases in English that have been taken from other languages. The language that each word was taken from is given as well as a translation. There is then a description of how each word is used along with any changes in meaning over time before an example sentence with the word in is given. The words are in alphabetical order. An interesting book that shows how the English language has developed through words from other languages.
