DAN JURAFSKY at Books Inc. Palo Ato

Stanford University Linguist and Mac Arthur-fellow Dan Jurafsky peels away the mysteries from the foods that we think we know with his joyous exploration, The Language of Food: A Linguist Reads the Menu.

Why do we eat toast for breakfast, and then toast to good health at dinner? What does the turkey we eat on Thanksgiving have to do with the country on the eastern Mediterranean? Can you figure out how much your dinner will cost by counting the words on the menu?
