This new edition of the Collins Dictionary of Curious Phrases is an updated and revised version of Leslie Dunkling's classic work on curious and baffling phrases, now integrated fully into the subject dictionary range. It is redesigned to make it easier to use and will also contain references to internet sites where readers will be able to find out yet more about the curious phrases we use. Phrases explained include 'kick the bucket', 'scream blue murder', 'a hair of the dog', 'cat's pyjamas', 'brass tacks' and 'red herrings.'
