Lexicon of idioms and slang
Students of the English language need guidance to negotiate the minefield of English idiomatic usage. In most cases, the sense of the whole expression cannot be arrived at from an understanding of the individual words; a special meaning is attached to the whole expression. Confidence in the use of idiomatic language is a reliable measure of the proficiency of a foreign learner. It is hoped that this new lexicon/dictionary will enable learners to reach this goal.
Within the book you will find:
· More than 25.000 entries covering idioms, phrasal verbs and slang
