Phrases, Sayings, and Idioms

Ever wonder what people actually mean when they talk about having your cake and eating it too? Well there are ways of finding out.  We’ve written about how to find legal terms and phrases before, but it’s also good to know where to find information on common phrases in general.  The Phrase Finder collects phrases and idioms—they research the origins and meanings, and then present them in fun to read summaries.  You can, if you want, sign up to receive a phrase a week by e-mail. They also include (although you have to buy a subscription) a phase thesaurus, which lets you enter a word or two, and will bring back a list of all the sayings, slogans, and catchphrases that use that word.
