Written by a physician, Body Language – from Head to Toe is a “dictionary” of American idioms and other expressions that contain the name of a body part. The use of body part-related expressions is both interesting and fun. This book contains about 2,000 such idioms, words, and expressions, such as “with the back against the wall,” “brainstorming,” “sweet tooth,” and “tongue in cheek.” Says author Per-Olof Hasselgren, “As a surgeon, I understand the importance of anatomy and the knowledge of organs and tissues. This book reflects my longstanding interest in idioms and other expressions referring to body parts, and it ‘connects’ anatomy with the spoken and written language.” This book was written for three main reasons. First, anatomy matters, particularly in surgery. During the last several years, collecting such expressions became a hobby for the author. Second, as someone moving to this country from another part of the world, Dr. Hasselgren is interested in the peculiarities of the American language. Idioms, slang, and other expressions are specific for any given language and quite often cannot be directly translated. Third, when one starts to be aware of them, written and spoken body language can become quite entertaining.

Das witzigste deutsche Wörterbuch. Vom Engländer Ben Schott. „Die deutsche Sprache ist so fruchtbar, dass sie für alles nur Denkbare auch ein eigenes Wort hat“, sagt Ben Schott und versammelt hier die wildesten Wortungetüme. Zum Beispiel die Bezeichnung für die Unsitte, einen Witz einfach immer wieder zu erzählen, bis jemand lacht: die WITZBEHARRSAMKEIT. Und kennen wir nicht alle den BESSERWINZER, der mit seinem Wissen über Wein angibt? Oder die angenehme Empfindung, am eigenen Geburtstag etwas Besonderes zu sein: das EXTRAWURSTTAGSGEFÜHL? Schott hat seiner Wortschatzfreude freien Lauf gelassen. Nach dem Welterfolg von "Schotts Sammelsurium" kommt jetzt das Neueste aus Ben Schotts genialer Werkstatt. Denn wie schon Mark Twain über die deutsche Sprache wusste: „Das sind keine Wörter mehr, das sind alphabetische Prozessionen.“

This comprehensive, up-to-date, and accessible text on idiom use, learning, and teaching approaches the topic with a balance of sound theory and extensive research in cognitive linguistics, psycholinguistics, corpus linguistics, and sociolinguistics combined with informed teaching practices. Idioms is organized into three parts: Part I includes discussion of idiom definition, classification, usage patterns, and functions. Part II investigates the process involved in the comprehension of idioms and the factors that influence individuals' understanding and use of idioms in both L1 and L2. Part III explores idiom acquisition and the teaching and learning of idioms, focusing especially on the strategies and techniques used to help students learn idioms. To assist the reader in grasping the key issues, study questions are provided at the end of each chapter. The text also includes a glossary of special terms and an annotated list of selective idiom reference books and student textbooks. Idioms is designed to serve either as a textbook for ESL/applied linguistics teacher education courses or as a reference book. No matter how the book is used, it will equip ESL/applied linguistics students and professionals with a solid understanding of various issues related to idioms and the learning of them.
