The English language is incredibly rich with centuries of history behind it. This does mean though that a lot of us use phrases today but we have absolutely no idea of why? What do they mean? Where does the saying come from? The meaning and origins of 100 common idioms or phrases are explained in this irreverent journey through the English language. This book takes you from the ancient world to the modern day and covers almost every aspect of life, it will open your eyes to the rich and fun heritage of the English language, maybe make you think twice but definitely raise a smile. 'The writings on the wall' though we don't want to 'blow our own trumpet' so 'keep your shirt on', we'll give you the 'full monty', 'Warts and all' lowdown on 100 of the most interesting Idioms. This isn't a 'damp squib' that deserves to be 'left on the shelf.' and that's 'Straight from the horse's mouth'!
