Thành ngữ mới “sáng tác” – new idioms

Thành ngữ mới trong tiếng Anh

Cross the line

Handsome is as handsome does

Talk a mile a minute

Too clever by half

Busy as a one-armed paper hanger

Grinning like a shot fox

I may have been born at night, but not last night

Fight fire with fire

First up, best dressed

Part of the furniture

Cut someone off at the knees

Turn someone’s crank

Cat and mouse

Fine-tooth comb

Like to died

Cool your Jets

Fly in the face of

Out of the goodness of your heart

It is what it is

Hit below the belt

Up to the hilt

On the off-chance

Lose your head

Wilder than a peach orchard boar

Put your oar in

Spread the word

Get the word out

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy

Love you and leave you

Foggiest idea

Nguồn gốc thành ngữ “it’s raining cats and dogs”

Posted on

In the 1500s, houses in Britain had thatched roofs with thick straw piled high and with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof. Hence the saying, “It’s raining cats and dogs”.
