Riassunto: There are times when we are trying to communicate with others and the exact words or phrases escape us. We find ourselves at a loss to share effectively our thoughts with another, and when this happens, we often unconsciously fall back on common Sayings and Phrases We All Use.
Crossing generational, racial, and geographical lines, the Sayings and Phrases We All Use are as common (and as numerous) as grass. However, instead of simply baldly stating what we mean, if we tend carelessly to use analogies and allegory, we could end up confusing our listener!
Donald A. Wion has compiled an alphabetical listing of many of the sayings and phrases we use in this collection, designed to entertain as well as to provoke thought. Some may find them interesting, while others will find them helpful in learning or using the English language. Read through them and see how many you recognize – you’ll be surprised!
L'autore: A native of Bellefonte, Donald A. Wion now resides in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. He and his late wife are the parents of two children. Retired from a career as a mechanical design engineer, he now enjoys woodcarving, singing, and playing the keyboard.
