I am reading this book: There's A Word For It! and the author Charles Harrington Elster claims that a particular excerpt was written by an ancient Greek philosopher Lexiphagoras of Alphasia.
I did some search with the google-fu "Lexiphagoras" and Google returned only 2 hits. Both the hits are referencing same book: There's A Word For It!
This has put my mind in the doubt that, did Lexiphagoras existed? Because there is no Wikipedia page or site or any Internet presence. Is it possible that, this philosopher's name resides in physical books somewhere in the corner of some library?
Can please throw some light on this philosopher and his work (if possible)?
I'll be pleased to read his work!
Thank you in advance.
