And some commonly used sentences.

*   Typical examples showing how the expressions are used.

*   The likely origins of some of these expressions.

*   Illustrations that serve two purposes:

book; and
2.  They illustrate how some expressions could be misinterpreted
by someone who is hearing them for the first time.

*   And, finally, some interesting expressions and proverbs
from other languages and cultures, which show how people
of the world have more things in common than we tend to realize.

This book is not about English grammar. It’s about being able
to communicate more effectively. Best of all, it’s good for all
language levels.

It’s important to know that some idioms and expressions may have different meanings under different circumstances. If what you see here does not satisfactorily explain what you’ve heard or read, please let us know.

Finally, we’ve tried to keep it clean. Obscene words are either excluded or only partially spelled. Please let us know if we’ve missed anything.
