Are you often stumped when trying to remember the source of a line from a movie or an advertising slogan?
The Oxford Dictionary of Catchphrases is the answer to the frequently asked questions "What's that from?" and "Who said that?" and offers a lively exploration of the history and usage of these common and timeless expressions. From "you talkin' to me?" to "melts in your mouth, not in your hand" to "see you later, alligator," this entertaining book provides a comprehensive selection of our best-loved catchphrases, paying homage to the human nature of adopting a common bond through language.
