Say What?- English Expressions
This particular page on my site is NOT for everyone. That's probably true of all of them. But maybe this one in particular. There will be hard core base of people who will love this, but a majority probably will not care for it. It's not for the faint of heart.
I've spent several years developing this list of English expressions, and while not everyone will enjoy exploring them, I am absolutely sure that if you've lived in the United States for any length of time, or if you've been here since birth, you have used at least SOME of these in your daily conversations.
Why am I so sure of this ? First of all, because of my perception and experiences. I've become more sensitive to these expressions since I began researching them. But I've become aware that I, and practically everyone around me, have been using these slang colloquial expressions almost every day, without even realizing what we are actually saying. And yet, we use these almost continuously in our everyday speech.
If we did stop a moment and think about it, we would probably realize that we have NO IDEA what we are speaking. And we would probably become just a little bit curious as to where these expressions actually came from, and why we use them.
So-- if you're up for it, go check it out. Just click on the TAB marked "Say What?".
