Idioms with headwords related to transportation
MetadataShow full item record
Transport is something that has a heavy influence in people’s everyday lives and thus it is predicted that there would be a myriad of idioms linked to this topic. The research confirms that there is a considerable amount of them, however to the best of my knowledge, this certain subfield of idioms has not been extensively researched. With the exception of the work written by Flexner and Soukhanov, published by the Oxford University Press in 1997. The author of the thesis is not aware of any other studies. The aim of this thesis is to see what transport idioms exist in the English language and how much they are connected to transportation itself. This thesis focuses on idioms that have headwords that are related to transportation, therefore the meaning of the idiom might be about something different. In the future, this paper could be used as a basis from which to create a bigger research or to just elaborate on. I will achieve my aim by compiling a list of idioms that have headwords related to transportation by searching for keywords in different dictionaries dealing with idioms, and reading through previous studies.
