Why You Say it? Webb Garrison

Why you Say it? by Webb Garrison

Ever wondered why we use different words in certain context? Have you even stopped for just one moment and thought about conversations you’ve had with people and thought to yourself, “why did I say that?” I’m amazed at all the unique phrases that we use and I’ve thought from time to time, “where did these phrases come from?”
The search has now ended, well at least some of it. In this book you will find a plethora of short phrases and words and a brief description which explains their origins. For example, do you know where the word “Diesel” comes from? How about the phrase “Caught Red-handed?” Many of these and more can be found in this anthology of word/phrases. Garrision has really done his research and if you’re curiosity overtakes you and you’re dying to know why we say what we say, you should pick up a copy.
