p.The English language contains a great store of idioms that can be used in creative and forceful ways. Dictionary of Idioms examines over 400 such phrases, tracing each one's source and history through a rich supply of examples. New entries in the revised edition include 'play fast and loose' (from a 16th-century fairground game), 'head over heels' (a totally illogical variation on the more sensible 'heels over head') and 'knee-high to a grasshopper' (which won out over knee-high to a mosquito and knee-high to a toad). Mini-essays scattered through the book expand on such broader themes as What is an idiom? National Rivalries and The Old Curiosity Shop of Linguistics. Linda and Roger Flavell combine scholarly accuracy with an unfailing understanding of the snippets of information that intrigue the browser.

Ecolinguistics recognizes the fact that different words mean different things to different people and that these differences in meaning for any given word correlate with the speaker's sex, age, education and kind of work, as well as the speaker's regional dialect. Variationism and a lack of absolute standards are not incidentals as grammatical theory construction, but are the norm for all known languages.
