Synopsis: This dictionary of idioms is designed to stimulate understanding and familiarity by explaining their meanings and origins and giving examples of typical usage. The basis of the author's approach is the grouping of phrases around a limited number of key words from which idioms are derived.

About the Author: DAPHNE GULLAND is the daughter of David Hinds-Howell and has been researching idioms and their origins for a number of years. She lives in Alfter, Germany. DAVID HINDS-HOWELL was born in 1916 and educated at Marlborough College and Oxford University. He had a long and distinguished career as a teacher of English and director of the Hillcrest School of English. He died recently.
