French idioms and proverbs : a companion to Deshumbert's "Dictionary of difficulties"

French idioms and proverbs

by Marius Deshumbert,

In this edition I have endeavoured to keep down additions as much as possible, so as not to overload the book; but I have not been sparing in adding cross-references (especially in the Index) and quotations from standard authors.. These quotations seldom give the first occasion on which a proverb has been used, as in most cases it is impossible to find it.


 I have placed an asterisk before all recognised pro- verbs ; these will serve as a first course for those students who do not wish to read through the whole book at once. In a few cases I have added explanations of English pro- verbs ; during the eleven years I have been using the book I have frequently found that pupils were, for instance, as ignorant of "to bell the cat" as they were of "attacher le grelot."
