Elizabeth Knowles:

Oxford Dictionary of Phrase and Fable - gebunden oder broschiert

2009, ISBN: 0198609817

[SR: 1023896], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780198609810], Oxford University Press, Oxford University Press, Book, [PU: Oxford University Press], 2009-05-26, Oxford University Press, Circuits & Component, Oxford University Press is known for thinking in long time spans (the first edition of the OED took 50 years). Even so, the genesis of The Oxford Dictionary of Phrase and Fable seems rather leisurely: the idea was first mooted in 1927, the book finally published in the year 2000. Perhaps this was partly because the famous Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, around since 1870, had something of a grip on that part of the market. Oxford's answer to Brewer's has taken care to be a bit bigger than its rival--it boasts 20,000 entries, rather than Brewer's 18,500. Like its rival it deals with an extraordinary hot-potch of phrases, expressions and allusions that you might struggle to find in an ordinary dictionary; as the editor puts it, "words, names and phrases with cultural resonance: items from history and religion, mythology, biography, folk customs and superstitions, science and technology, philosophy, and popular culture." The last of these includes such late 90s favourites as "Blair Babes" and "Frankenfood"--"a derogatory term for food derived from genetically modified produce, a shortening of Frankenstein food; the word is recorded from 1992 ..." explains our text, in its rather formal style, going on to give an example of early usage. A somewhat strait-laced guide it may be, but it can tell you about almost anything. Philosophers, scientists and kings, places and buildings you might find mentioned in literary works, imaginary beasts and famous sayings--they are here in vast numbers. The little Latin phrases that baffle those without a classical education? This book will introduce you to obscurities such as ductus litterarum or aquila non captat muscas, although it doesn't stoop to entries for such relatively common terms as a priori and a posteriori. Where it can't give you a definitive answer, it presents several options--two possible origins for the phrase "send to Coventry", for example, or three for "raining cats and dogs." It's a wonderful ramble through many different worlds of words, and for anyone who loves the English language and its literature, a stroll through this dictionary will necessarily be punctuated by endless curious halts as yet another mystery is explained. --David Pickering, 932104, Reference, 932082, Books & Reading, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 930346, Mythology, 930372, African, 930378, Arthurian Legends, 930370, Asian, 930368, Celtic & British Isles, 930350, Children's Books, 930380, Egyptian, 930362, Folklore, 930382, Gilgamesh, 930348, Greek & Roman, 930376, Holy Grail, 930384, Indian, 930386, Norse, 930388, Sagas, 930366, Storytelling, 927792, World Literature, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 952398, Dictionaries & Thesauruses, 952400, Cliches, 952536, Computer, 952404, English (American), 952406, English (British), 1051698, English (Canadian), 952408, English (Specific Aspects), 952410, Foreign Language Dictionaries & Thesauruses, 952522, Geography, 952524, Lexicography, 952526, Picture, 952528, Science, 952530, Slang & Idioms, 952532, Synonyms & Antonyms, 952534, Thesauruses, 952366, Education & Reference, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 952660, Mythology & Folklore, 952628, Encyclopedias, 952366, Education & Reference, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 952688, Foreign Language Study & Reference, 952798, African, 952806, Arabic, 14233681, Books on CD, 952898, Books on Cassette, 952812, Chinese, 952818, Danish, 952704, English as a Second Language, 952822, French, 952826, German, 952832, Greek, 952838, Hebrew, 952842, Hungarian, 952690, Instruction, 952844, Italian, 952848, Japanese, 952854, Korean, 952860, Polish, 952866, Portuguese, 952872, Russian, 952876, Serbo-Croatian, 952880, Spanish, 952890, Turkish, 952892, Yiddish, 952410, Foreign Language Dictionaries & Thesauruses, 952366, Education & Reference, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 952952, Quotations, 952366, Education & Reference, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 953400, Spanish-Language Reference, 952366, Education & Reference, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 15306451, Literature, 15306521, American Literature, 15306461, Creative Writing & Composition, 15306531, English Literature, 15306511, Literary Theory, 690380011, World Literature, 15306041, Humanities, 15115321, Textbooks, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 2223256011, Reference, 2223257011, Atlases, 2223258011, Bibliographies & Indexes, 2223259011, Dictionaries, 2223260011, Encyclopedias, 2223262011, Writing Skills, 15115321, Textbooks, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books

What is a ham-and-egger? What are Anglo-Saxon attitudes? Who or what is liable to jump the shark? Who first tried to nail jelly to the wall? The answers to these and many more questions are in this fascinating book. Here in one volume you can track down the stories behind the names and sayings you meet, whether in classic literature or today's news. This authoritative dictionary draws on Oxford's unrivalled bank of reference and language online resources to cover classical and other mythologies, history, religion, folk customs, superstitions, science and technology, philosophy, and popular culture. Extensive cross referencing makes it easy to trace specific information, while every page points to further paths to explore. What is the fog of war? Who first wanted to spend more time with one's family? When was the Dreamtime? How long since the first cry of Women and children first? Where might you find dark matter? Would you want the Midas touch? Should you worry about grey goo? Oxford Dictionary of Phrase and Fable Knowles, Elizabeth, Oxford University Press
