Nautical Dictionary: The Sailor’s Word Book

You’re sure to learn something new from this nautical dictionary.  Even if you already know about yawl, pitch and roll, grab a copy of The Sailor’s Word Book.  It defines “Over 14,000 Nautical and Naval Terms.”  An updated version of a 19th century classic work  by William Henry Smyth, it’s still relevant today.

This dictionary of nautical terms is on my ‘to get’ list.  I love the sea, and have made an effort to learn quite a few words from the language of the sea.  But it’s surely nowhere near 14,000 words!

A nautical dictionary should be on your get list, too, if you’re a sea lover.  For readers of maritime novels, it’s a handy reference of  maritime terms.   A nice gift for students of naval history, it’s available in paperback or for the Kindle.
