New Book Speeding Toward Completion

As progress speeds toward completion of the second volume of Most Comprehensive Origins of Clichés, Proverbs, and Figurative Expressions, I want to emphasize the fact that everyone needs the first volume. They go together “like two peas in a pod,” a saying which has been with us in English since 1580, found in the original volume. This book has sold thousands of copies and is in several college libraries. It has been given accolades by librarians, professors, editors, authors, and others. It is available at and on Amazon sites worldwide.

  1. As you know, my long-time favorite is On the Origin of the Clichés and Evolution of Idioms, mainly because it is a wonderful resource tool with which to explore and teach individuals diagnosed with ASD. In keeping, I can only add that Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions, including the upcoming second volume, should also be considered as a resource tool in the same vein.

  2. All of the phrases in On the Origin…are included in Most Comprehensive Origins, first volume, with some small changes, minus pictures and personal inferences. The research on this new one has been really rewarding, with many more for which others have failed to find proper origins, and even a few which I have found what appears to be proof of actual reason they came into use which was never even attempted by other researchers and etymologists. .Additionally, this one has even more British sayings and about 35 Australian ones–over 1000 entirely new expressions, proverbs and idioms. I am extremely excited about the potential of it coupled with the first volume of Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions.
