Dictionary of Idioms,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dictionary of Idioms and Their Origins (Paperback)
For someone with a foreign in-law 'Dictionary of Idioms' is a must!
It's bad enough trying to explain simple English, but a 'lost cause' trying to explain our idiomatic speech-without the help of such a book. When 'the penny drops' on the quaint meanings behind idiomatic speech, much laughter as well as knowledge is generated.
