PHRASES AND SAYING 

Etymology of the City of London
by Alan Read

THE LECTURE

The English language is rich in idioms, phrases and sayings which are part of everyday speech yet seldom to we consider their original meanings. This is an exploration of historical etymology, often traceable to the City of London. Even if you have a ‘rob Peter to pay Paul’ and it’s ‘raining cats and dogs’ you would be ‘barking mad’ to miss this lecture.
