"L'auteur essaie de nous faire partager son amour de la langue française et de nous en donner le goût. C'est-à-dire qu'elle insiste plus sur les beautés de cette langue que sur les dangers qui la menacent. A partir d'un mot qu'elle a choisi, elle cherche à en préciser le sens, la valeur correcte, l'étymologie, ainsi que l'évolution qui, en fonction des changements de la société, des découvertes scientifiques, ou des réflexions des écrivains, a chargé ces mots de nuances nouvelles. S'il existe des inventions inutiles et pédantes, qui ne sont en réalité que des fautes portées par une mode souvent précaire, il existe aussi des changements qui reflètent notre histoire et notre pensée
