 ABOUT THE TITLE
An idiom can be defined as a group of words strung together to assume a specific meaning different from the meaning of each individual word. Such an idiomatic meaning can normally be expressed through other means, but it is usually not done so with equal force and vividness. English idioms take different forms and are unclear in meaning on the surface structure. Generally speaking, they consist of the following six types:
• Phrasal verbs, such as ‘call on, put off, do away with’;
• Prepositional phrases, such as ‘in a nutshell, from time to time, with a view to’;
• Idioms with verbs as key words, such as ‘come in handy, fight shy of, leave much to be desired’;
• Idioms with nouns as key words, such as ‘blessing in disguise, child’s play, food for thought’;
• Idioms with adjectives as key words, such as ‘cold comfort, wishful thinking, plain sailing’;
• Idiomatic pairs, such as ‘safe and sound, aches and pains, sink or swim’.
Of the six categories, (1) – (3) are larger in number; (6) is somewhat limited. It is highly recommended that great effort be made to master as many of the first three categories as possible. Other categories are not to be sneezed at, either. However, as far as learning and understanding are concerned, the latter types of idioms seem to be less abstract and not as difficult to grasp.
Many idioms cannot be altered in any component part. As a rule, no other synonymous word can replace any word in an idiom; nor can the arrangement of words be wilfully modified, added or deleted. Any attempted change in wording or word arrangement will destroy the idiom concerned and render the expression meaningless or turn it into another idiom with a vastly different
meaning.
In view of the importance of idioms for day-to-day English communication, this book has incorporated a large number of essential idioms and proverbs with explanations and illustrations. In fact, readers from all walks of life will find it easy to make use of these practical idioms in all spheres of their life.
It is therefore certain that those using this book with tenacity will find it meaningful, purposeful, stimulating, rewarding, thus reaping the handsome reward of their great endeavours.
