Foreignisms: A Dictionary of Foreign Expressions Commonly (And Not So Commonly) Used in English Reviews
2.5 stars. Perhaps if this fulfilled a specific need, one might rate it higher. And perhaps I'm being a bit unfair. It does say Dictionary in the title. And it does also allow for the not so common - in the title. However, it turned out to be not at all what I expected. It wasn't well organized, it was dull and dry. All potential for being a fun, interesting read was lost. I found hardly any common expressions. I'd HEARD of many of them, but I wouldn't call them common. I just felt that it could have been so much more.
