Description
A former staff editor on The Random House Dictionary of the English Language and the author of 1001 Smartest Things Ever Said, Steven Price here considers some of English's most colorful phrases—three sheets to the wind, catch lightning in a bottle, whole nine yards, flip side, Hobson's choice, lounge lizard, Dutch courage, and the sword of Damocles. He wonders how long these once-common idioms will survive when most of us have forgotten what they originally meant. Can such endangered phrases be saved? And if so, should they be?
