The book is designed to help persons from other cultures who know some English but are confused by our use of English words in slang, idiomatic, and other unusual uses of such words, whether used singly or in combinations. The book focuses simply on the meaning to Americans of each expression. There are over 7,000 expressions in this small-sized 479 page book. The listings of expressions are arranged alphabetically according to a key word (s) in each expression. This key work appears in bold type. Where expressions have more than one key word, they appear at the alphabetical location of each of the key words. This minimizes the needless page flapping or cross-referencing.
