Blow Off Steam (W3)

Die Redewendung engl. "Blow Off Steam" geht - wie dt. "Dampf ablassen" - auf die Zeit der Dampfmaschinen zurück. Das Zusammenspiel von Feuer, Wasser und Fortbewegung war etwas regelträge und der Dampfdruck konnte nicht beliebig vaiiert werden. Und wenn der Dampfdruck nicht direkt in Arbeitskraft umgewandelt werden konnte, musste Dampf - ungenutzt - abgelassen werden. Heute wird der Ausdruck engl. "Blow Off Steam" mangels Dampfmaschinen nur noch im übertragenen Sinne verwendet.

Perhaps the ultimate challenge for a language learner, idioms require special explanation. Would a fluent English speaker be able to explain why "kick the bucket" means "to expire?" The American Heritage Dictionary of Idioms not only defines each entry but provides an example of how the phrase is actually used. Browsing this resource can reveal meanings that native speakers may not even know.

Have you been searching for just the right cliché to use? Are you searching for a cliché using the word "cat" or "day" but haven't been able to come up with one? Just enter any words in the form below, and this search engine will return any clichés which use that phrase...

What is a Cliché?

I get many suggestions of cliches to add to this list - sometimes as many as a few hundred a day. As such, I consider myself quite experienced in identifying cliches. And, reading all these suggestions, I've realized something of late: too many people don't know what cliches are.
...
Answer: a lot. A cliche is not just something that lots of people say; It's something that lots of people say and it conveys some sort of idea or message. A cliche is, in other words, a metaphor characterized by its overuse.

These words send a strong message. They say that you do not need to be extremely intelligent to understand something

How did the expression begin?

No one seems to know for sure. But an official of the American space agency -- NASA -- says the expression just grew. It grew, he says, because rocket scientists probably are the most intelligent people around.

Nothing expresses the vitality, history, and character of a language quite like its idioms. Ask any non-native English speaker to make sense of a phrase such as "beg the question" or "keep your eyes peeled"; they can't do it. Idioms don't translate, which is what makes them such intriguing mirrors of how a culture evolves along with its speech. The American Heritage Dictionary of Idioms includes almost 10,000 of these figures of speech, slang phrases, clichés, colloquialisms, and proverbs, from "ace in the hole" to "zoom in on". Each entry defines an idiom, uses it in a sentence, then pinpoints its historical origins when possible. Some idioms, it turns out, preserve words or word uses that have otherwise fallen out of use ("one fell swoop"); others allude to long-forgotten catch phrases from movies or advertising ("more bounce for the ounce"). Consider, for instance the phrase "funny bone" - actually a pun on "humerus", the Latin name for the bone of the upper arm. Or the expression "moment of truth", a translation from the Spanish phrase originally referring to bullfighting - and first popularized, not surprisingly, by Ernest Hemingway. The American Heritage Dictionary of Idioms is like an archeological dig through the vernacular, and it unearths treasures such as these on every one of its pages. All those interested in language or its history should keep a copy on their library shelves.
