This guide would be of particular use to the advanced Arab learner of English who wishes to improve his knowledge of English similes, conceptual metaphors and idioms, but also to the learner of Arabic searching for an equivalent Arabic expression to a common English phrase. So, by way of example, whereas an English speaker might say ‘as agile as a cat’, an Arab speaker would say ‘with the grace of a gazelle’ (bi-rashaaqat ul-ghazaal). Each lexical entry is given in English, followed by its part of speech, an explanation of its meaning in English and the meaning(s) in Arabic. No English meanings, however, are given for similes. Wherever possible, the English entry or phrase is translated by an equivalent phrase in Arabic
