This collection will appeal to everyone who has ever wondered about the origin of phrases like ""all part of life's rich pattern' and 'long time no see'. It covers a wide range of catch phrases in current use in all parts of the English-speaking world. Most entries are drawn from the second edition of Eric Partridge's 'A Dictionary of Catch Phrases', but have been completely rewritten in the light of recent research, and there are many additions.
