Word And Phrase Origins

Numerous explanations for the above, such as "Blinking Idiot! A very stupid person", in dictionary format

Description

Fascinating for anyone with an interest in language, as it attempts to explain why we say phrases such as 'take a rain check' or 'a cat in hell's chance', as well as why we may call someone a 'wally' or a 'twerp'. This dictionary takes pride in offering several possibilities rather than just the commonly believed version and exposes many myths and misconceptions.
