Salty Dog Talk

The Nautical Origins of Everyday Expressions


Most of us never realise how many words and expressions used in
everyday English have a nautical origin. This fascinating and charming
pocket book explains the seafaring beginnings of over 200 such phrases - colourful, bizarre and surprising - and how they came ashore.

Just a few examples are:

Chance your arm
Money for old rope
Spic and span
Push the boat out
At close quartersThis entertaining book has been a popular title for boaters and landlubbers alike, ever since first publication in 1983.
