Every day we pepper our speech with hundreds of phrases, place names and expressions, but rarely do we think about their origins. If we did, wed be in for a treat, because the stories behind our sayings are often fascinating, amusing and intriguing. Following on from the bestselling March Hares and Monkeys Uncles, once again Harry Oliver has delved deep into the history behind hundreds of terms in our endlessly rich language, and produced a tome packed with answers to the questions you might ask about the words and phrases we all use but rarely stop to ponder. From ancient idioms to up-to-the-minute lingo, this book has it all.
