Description

Clichés, those trite little phrases that often get a point across quickly and efficiently, have become such a familiar part of the English language and people’s everyday speech. This entertaining book takes an in-depth look at hundreds of these common expressions in their many forms – where they came from, what they mean, how they’ve evolved over time and their prominence in today’s society.

Inside you’ll discover hundreds explored and explained, such as:

  • Thinking outside the box
  • All hands on deck
  • My way or the highway
  • To be perfectly honest
  • And many others!
