An excellent resource for word lovers . . . inherently fascinating and an excellent place to look for old chestnuts galore.

Product Description

An A-to-Z guide to thousands of stock phrases and common expressions—with definitions, origins, and more.
 
The largest, most comprehensive, and most entertaining reference of its kind, The Dictionary of Clichés features more than four thousand clichés and common expressions. Author Christine Ammer explores the terms that enliven our language, from “blood is thicker than water” to “brass tacks” to “burn the midnight oil.”
 
Whether clichés get under your skin or make you happy as a clam, The Dictionary of Clichés goes the extra mile to provide an essential resource for students, teachers, writers, and anyone with a keen interest in language. And that’s food for thought.
