    Did you ever think 'Ring Around The Rosie' makes reference to the Black Death of the Middle Ages? Or that 'the whole nine yards' refers to the length of a machine gun ammo belt on a WWII fighter plane? Or perhaps that Eskimoshave 500 words for snow? Like classic urban legends, these linguistic legends are popular and pervasive. But instead of propagating cautionary tales about the dangers of modern life, linguistic urban folklore spreads stores and 'facts'about language and words. These 'facts' are usually false, but the legends contain elements of truth that reflect on us and our society. This book takes on these linguistic urban legends/case histories, setting the record straight.
