DESCRIPTION
Oxford Dictionary of Idioms takes a fresh look at the idiomatic phrases and sayings that make English the rich and intriguing language that it is.

 • Contains over 6,000 idioms from all over the English-speaking world
 • Hundreds of illustrative quotations, both modern and historical, offer readers a clear idea of how the phrases can be used
 • Extra features offer fascinating additional information for many entries
 • Easy to navigate, including many cross-references, making it ideal for quick reference.
 • Most useful alternative words given first, with word closest in meaning to entry word given in bold
 • Draws on the latest findings of Oxford`s language monitoring - the largest dictionary research programme in the world
 • Detailed background on every idiom
 • NEW! Lookup words in any other Android app with the Tap to Translate feature, and do it in style with any of the four colorful new themes.

Did you know that `flavour of the month` originated in a marketing campaign in American ice-cream parlours in the 1940s, when a particular flavour would be specially promoted for a month at a time? And did you know that `off the cuff` refers to the rather messy practice of writing impromptu notes on one`s shirt cuff before speaking in public?
These and many more idioms are explained and put into context in the Oxford Dictionary of English Idioms completed with a range of recently established idioms such as `the elephant in the corner`, `go figure`, `like a rat up a drainpipe`, `sex on legs`, `step up to the plate`, `too posh to push`, `a walk in the park`, `win ugly`.

Also includes advanced search and language tools that have become the staple of quality language apps from MobiSystems, Inc.

 • Camera search looks up words in the camera viewfinder and displays results
 • Use our ; Voice search when you don`t know how an entry is spelled.
 • Share word definitions via installed apps on your device
