Harry Collis, "101 American English Idioms"
MGH | 2007 | ISBN: 0071487727 | 136 pages | PDF+MP3 | 63 MB
101 American English Idioms is designed to help bridge the gap between "meaning" and "thrust" of American colloquialisms by providing a situation and a graphic illustration of that situation, so that the imagery created by the expression can be felt, rather than simply learned as a stock definition.
The book is divided into nine sections. The title of each section reflects a notion or a manifestation of the physical world, the world of behavior, or the world of the senses with which the reader may easily identify.
