Podrobný popis:

Publikace: OXFORD DICTIONARY OF ENGLISH IDIOMS 3rd Edition (Oxford Paperback Reference) - AYTO, J.. Did you know that 'flavour of the month' originated in a marketing

campaign in American ice-cream parlours in the 1940s, when a

particular flavour would be specially promoted for a month at a

time? And did you know that 'off the cuff' refers to the rather

messy practice of writing impromptu notes on one's shirt cuff

before speaking in public? These and many more idioms are explained

and put into context in this third edition of the Oxford Dictionary

of English Idioms. The volume takes a fresh look at the idiomatic

phrases and sayings that make English the rich and intriguing

language that it is. This major new edition contains entries for

over 6,000 idioms, including 700 entirely new entries, based on

Oxford's language monitoring and the ongoing third edition of the

Oxford English Dictionary. These include a range of recently

established idioms such as 'the elephant in the corner', 'go

figure', 'like a rat up a drainpipe', 'sex on legs', 'step up to

the plate', 'too posh to push', 'a walk in the park', 'win ugly'.

This edition also features a greatly increased number of

cross-references, making it ideal for quick reference. Many entries

include additional features which give more detailed background on

the idiom in question. For example, did you know that 'taken aback'

was adopted from nautical terminology that described a ship unable

to move forward because of a strong headwind pressing its sails

back against the mast? Anyone interested in the colourful side of

the English language will get hours of fun browsing from this

fascinating and informative volume. Publikace: OXFORD DICTIONARY OF ENGLISH IDIOMS 3rd Edition (Oxford Paperback Reference) - AYTO, J.. Oxfordský slovník anglických idiomů s více než 6.000 hesly a vysvětlením jejich původu a významu.
