The Penguin Dictionary of English Idioms

The English language is full of pitfalls for the foreign student - bizarre spelling, illogical rules of grammar - but the most common problem lies in understanding and using the vast array ..of idioms.

'Putting the cart before the horse’, letting the cat out of the bag’, 'sticking one's neck out' and 'queering the pitch' are among the many thousands of phrases in daily use that are likely to cause confusion. The Penguin Dictionary of English Idioms is uniquely designed to stimulate understanding and familiarity by explaining the meanings and origins of idioms and giving examples of typical usage.

The basis of the authors' approach is the grouping of phrases around a limited number of key words from which idioms are derived, such as Dog, Money. Blue or Nose. By using this method, the student will not only be able to compare and distinguish related Idioms In a more systematic way than is possible with conventional dictionaries, but will also derive a greater understanding and enjoyment from this essential feature of English usage.
