A saying, sometimes known as a proverb or a maxim, is an expression consisting of a wise rule of conduct or advice, usually expressed orally - such as “the buck stops here” by President Harry Truman. Idiomatic expressions differ from sayings in that they usually do not form a complete sentence. For example, “holier than thou” and “hard nut to crack,” are typical idiomatic expressions. Compact and comprehensive, this volume helps you write better and create more colorful speech, with indexes in both English and Spanish. El refrán, también conocido como proverbio o adagio, es un dicho o precepto que, por lo general, contiene un mensaje o consejo que usualmente se transmite de boca en boca. El modismo difiere del refrán en que, por lo general, no se presenta en oración completa, como las expresiones típicas “mas papista que el papa” y “de la seca a la meca.” Conciso y extenso, este libro le ayudará escribir major y creer discurso mas pintoresco, con indices en ingles y español.
