An Illustrated Book of Loaded Language: Learn To Hear What's Unsaid

by Ali Almossawi Author and Alejandro Giraldo Illustrator

Language can be deceptive and carry multiple meanings. Sometimes people are oblivious to these multivalent meanings, and sometimes they will deliberately use these vagueries of language to pull the wool over your eyes, or manipulate your understanding. Don't be fooled! In this book, Ali Almossawi dives into the hidden implications, secret meanings, and interpretations that phrases and words we use everyday often conceal within themselves. By dissecting these common phrases and unraveling these additional meanings, we can prepare ourselves to hear what is left unsaid and choose our words more carefully.
