Studies in Words is a work of linguistic scholarship published by the Cambridge University Press in 1960. In this book, Lewis examines the history of various words used in the English language which have changed their meanings often quite widely throughout the centuries. The meanings in the predecessor languages are also part of the discussion. Two settings of the work currently exist, which coincide with the first and second edition. The Second Edition includes three additional chapters.
