American Slang Dictionary and Thesaurus by Mary ElizabethThis unique reference volume is two books in one: a dictionary of slang and a slang thesaurus, with both sections treating the same words and phrases. With this book, you'll be able to find out how the "screaming meemies" got their name.
The Oxford Dictionary of Idioms by Judith Siefring (Editor)Did you know that 'flavor of the month' originated in a marketing campaign in American ice-cream parlors in the 1940s, when a particular flavor would be specially promoted for a month at a time? Or that 'off the cuff' refers to the rather messy practice of writing impromptu notes on one's shirt cuff before speaking in public? This second edition takes a fresh look at the idiomatic phrases and sayings that make English a rich and intriguing language.
