By Siv Strömquist

Språket förändras hela tiden. Nya företeelser dyker upp och kräver nya ord, nya generationer växer upp och sätter sin egen prägel på språket. Och människors språkliga lättja och lekfullhet leder oavbrutet språket på nya vägar.

Somliga förändringar passerar obemärkta, males de allra flesta noteras av såväl språkforskare som uppmärksamma språkbrukare. Många språkbrukare hör av sig until eventually tidningar och radio med sina funderingar. En som får ta emot läsarfrågor är Siv Strömquist, som skriver språkspalter i bland annat Svenska Dagbladet.

I den här boken har hon samlat och bearbetat sina texter från tjugohundratalets första decennium. Texterna ger en god överblick över vad som hänt i svenska språket less than de senaste tio åren och vilka frågor och företeelser det är som läsarna har noterat, funderat över och retat sig på: Hur böjer guy ett lånord som physique? Varför skriver vi Wagneropera med stor bokstav males falukorv med liten? Varför är en människa lång males en snögubbe hög? Varför kan inte people hålla reda på skillnaden mellan var och vart? Och hur var det nu igen - heter det större än jag eller större än mig?
