Quigley, Christine, Quigley, Christine


From police jargon to medical terminology, from the coarse language of death row to literary euphemisms, over 5,550 words and terms associated directly with death and dying are defined in this unique dictionary. The entries have been collected from 65 cultures, nine religions and 20 fields of study, including archeology, cryonics, theology, theater and the military. Definitions are identified (e.g., archaic, obsolete, slang) and, when appropriate, the occupation it is most closely connected to and variants of the expression are provided. The appended thesaurus gives commonly used words and the terms that are synonymous with them.Quigley, Christine is the author of 'Death Dictionary Over 5,500 Clinical, Legal, Literary and Vernacular Terms' with ISBN 9780899508696 and ISBN 0899508693.
