Paul Smith verschickt "One Word A Day", d.h. jeden Tag einen englischen Ausdruck, wie er in England oder den USA in jeder Zeitung, nicht aber unbedingt in einem deutschen Schulbuch steht. Verpackt ist das ganze als Multiple-Choice-Test.

Man findet nicht zu allen Begriffen etymologische Hinweise, aber immer interessante sprachliche Hinweise.

he answered facetiously
he can't cut the mustard
he can't hold a candle to her
he created a furore
he cut his teeth
he did not bat an eyelid
he dragged his feet
he gave me a sermon
He got a rocket!
He had egg on his face
he has a short fuse
he has it down to a fine art
he is a shrink
he is at my beck and call
he is in awe of her
he is psychic
he is pusillanimous
He looks woebegone
he made a gaffe
he nailed it
he popped the question
He said it tongue-in-cheek
he stole my thunder
he struck out
he was acquitted
he was harangued
he was outgunned
he was pilloried
he was smitten by her
he was sold down the river
he went bananas
He's at the gym
He's been mollycoddled
He's burning the candle at both ends
he's flaunting his wealth
he's got ants in his pants
he's grandstanding
he's had one too many
he's in cahoots with George
He's in the doghouse
He's long in the tooth
he's lost his marbles
he's nice and angry
he's off beam
he's out of pocket

I am loath to do that
I am under the weather
I catch your drift
I dabble in mathematics
I don't mean to pry
I feel giddy
I feel rejuvenated
I get the jitters
I got a jab
I got it for a song
I had a whale of a time
I had no inkling
I had to chuckle
I have a bone to pick with you
I have a monkey on my back
I have a yen for it
I heard it straight from
I made a boo boo
I must see a man about a dog
I relish that
I rued the decision
I was aghast
I was blown away
I was flabbergasted!
I was fobbed off
I was gutted
I was hoodwinked
I was nonplussed
I was shanghaied
I was stumped
I was taken aback
I'm all ears
I'm at the end of my tether
I'm drawing a blank
I'm fed up
I'm holding the baby
I'm in a bind
I'm snowed under
I've got a bone to pick
I've got your number

it costs a pretty penny
it cuts both ways
it did the trick
it drives me around the bend
It is incumbent on us
it knocked my socks off
it looks dicey
it takes two to tango
it tickled my fancy
it was a dead heat
it was pancaked
it was rectified
it was touch and go
it's a cinch
it's a gas!
it's a piece of cake
It's a shambolic situation
it's a steal
It's a stop-gap
it's a toss-up
it's all Greek to me
it's curtains for him
it's fishy
it's for a needy cause
it's going swimmingly
it's in the pipeline
it's infuriating
it's mind boggling
It's not over till the fat lady sings
It's not rocket science
it's on the cards
it's six of one, half dozen of the other
it's sweltering

Synopsis
This is a romp through more than 250 obscure, abstruse, wacky, and wonderful words from the founders of the world's no. 1 word-lovers' Web site. Written by the founders of the wildly popular "A Word A Day" Web site and daily e-mail (500,000 subscribers, worldwide), this collection of unusual, obscure, and exotic English words is a must-have for writers, scholars, crossword puzzlers, and word buffs of every ilk. Like their e-mails, the book is organized around weekly themes and offers readers a different word for each day of the week in categories ranging from "Portmanteaux" to "Words That Make Spell-Checker Ineffective." Each entry includes a concise definition, etymology, and usage example, and many entries feature fascinating and amusing commentaries by A.W.A.D. subscribers and the authors. Representing fifty-five weeks worth of words, the 273 words compiled in "A Word A Day" includes some of the most popular weekly themes that have appeared on the Web site since its founding in 1994.
