Description
Also the author of The American Heritage Dictionary of Idioms, etymological language maven Christine Ammer here offers an enlightening and entertaining reference to nearly 4,000 clichés. Whether you're ready to fork over, go belly-up, have 24/7 access, run amok, be at loose ends, go neck and neck, pull someone's leg, or have more fun than a barrel of monkeys, this is the book to double-check that you're applying that cliché correctly, and to find out why people would say such a thing anyway.

"An excellent resource for word lovers ... inherently fascinating and an excellent place to look for old chestnuts galore."—Library Journal
