: I have been searching for a book for my father who lives in Canada and the only thing I found that was remotely close was "Slang and it's meanings". What he wanted was where phrases, or sentences come from their origin. Am I making any sense?
: Ex: Don't look a gift horse in the mouth"

: Can anyone help me find one? I'm banging my head against the wall with no success.
: I really do appreciate it.
: THank you,
: Kelly
: (this is the first time I am writing in a "forum" which I don't even know what that means! LOL
