Phil Cousineau really, really loves words. In his new book, "The Painted Word: A Treasure Chest of Remarkable Words and Their Origins," that passion shines through as Cousineau digs deep into history to find the stories behind words ranging from abbey-lubber ("a holy, lazy, fool") to zuihitsu ("a spontaneous jotting down of one's thoughts"). We talk with the author about his latest love letter to language.
