5th Edition
Adam Makkai, Maxine T. Boatner, and John E. Gates - All books by this author

Updated to keep pace with Americans’ constant changes in the many ways they use, create, and abandon idioms, this book presents approximately 2,500 American-English idiomatic words and expressions.
  • Each entry identified by part of speech
  • A concise definition for every idiom
  • Each idiom used in an illustrative sentence
Expressions are also categorized as formal, informal, slang, or literary. Readers will learn the meanings behind common idioms such as, ghost town, kiss and tell, ace a test, dodge the bullet, eye candy, and more. Here’s a handy reference guide for ESL students, foreign travelers in North America, and anybody who has an interest in English language usage.
