Summary
The cat will never have your tongue once you have The American Heritage Dictionary of Idioms - the largest collection of idioms and popular phrases available today. Its main fare is idioms - groups of two or more words that taken together mean something different from the literal meaning of the individual words. Each entry is defined and has an example sentence showing the idiom used in context. Most entries offer an explanation of the idiom's literal meaning or origin and include information about its first appearance in English
