Dictionary of American Idioms and Phrasal Verbs

 

Description

The most practical reference to the idiomatic and verbal expressions of contemporary American English!

From proverbial expressions such as “a stitch in time saves nine” to idioms such as “dead ringer” to such common phrases as “put out” and “take on”, idioms and phrasal verbs seem to serve no other purpose than to frustrate and confuse serious language learners like you. Don’t despair! Thanks to the efforts of noted lexicographer Richard A. Spears, mastering American English idioms has never been easier.

McGraw-Hill’s Dictionary of American Idioms and Phrasal Verbs covers the full breadth and scope of idiomatic American English, making it an invaluable resource for ESL students as well as writers, scholars and public speakers.

You will never be more confused by American English again thanks to:

* More than 24, 000 entries and 27, 000 senses, with concise definitions and at least one example sentence for each phrase so you become comfortable using idiomatic phrases, proverbial expressions, and clichés

* Guidance on the correct tone and social context so you know when and where not to use certain words and phrases

* A comprehensive Phrase-Finder index of more than 60, 000 entries that lets you locate phrases by key words, including common particles in two-part verbs
