To 'put the cart before the horse', have 'the cheek of the devil' or be 'a pillar of society' - these are just some of the thousands of idioms that have become an integral part of the English language. "The Penguin Dictionary of English Idioms" looks at a vast range of examples, providing concise definitions and explaining how they should be used.

This practical guide is arranged by theme, making it possible to compare all the idioms in that subject area and find the right one for the occasion, whether in writing or speech.

The numerical mistakes mentioned by the author have been corrected, making this, as mentioned, one of the great reference classics.
