Synopsis: Do you know the connection between the expression A HARROWING EXPERIENCE and agriculture, between BY AND LARGE and sailing, between GET YOUR GOAT and horses, or between STEAL YOUR THUNDER and show business? You probably have heard the comparisons HAPPY AS A CLAM, SMART AS A WHIP, PLEASED AS PUNCH, DEAD AS A DOORNAIL - but have you ever wondered why a clam should be happy, a whip smart, punch pleased, and a doornail dead? By playing the fifty games in this book, you'll discover the answers to these questions as well as hundreds of other semantic delights that repose in our marvelous English language.

From the Back Cover: Fun & Games For Language Lovers. Some of these games are as easy as rolling off a log, while others may leave you stumped (until you peek at the answers). But whether you play alone or with friends, this collection of matchless semantic antics will bring you hours of lexicological pleasure.
