To HANG SOMEONE OUT TO DRY is to leave that person in a difficult situation, to stop supporting that person. News & Star (Carlisle, Cumbria, UK): <<Former Commons deputy speaker Nigel Evans makes a good case for Legal Aid ...
Innocent people who have been “dragged through the courts” shouldn’t face financial ruin, he says. And he’s absolutely right. ...
No argument there. An innocent man should shoulder no burdening penalty when he walks free from court. Neither should innocent people without a hope in hell of raising the price of decent representation be hung out to dry for want of private wealth.>>

NO-BRAINER: an easy decision, an obvious choice. YourCanterbury.co.uk: <<Gillingham striker Danny Kedwell says his decision to sign a new two-year deal with the club he supports was “a no-brainer”.
Kedwell, the club’s top scorer in his first two seasons, told the club website: “There were a few clubs interested, but first I wanted to see what I was getting offered here – they gave me the two-year deal and I enjoy playing for the club I support.
“It’s also easier for me just to be here with my family, so it was a no-brainer, really.>>

Hi Muriel,

Thanks a lot for these eye idioms.
It's interesting to feel differences between cultures, to find the French corresponding idioms.
(I don't have much time and won't do this for all of them -at the moment-).

> apple of your eye
La prunelle de vos yeux
I'd have a question here: is "prunelle" the fruit or the physical part?
I would say the apple is rather common and doesn't translate the preciosity of the object (grandson in the example).
> in the blink of an eye
en un clin d'oeil
I've to point out English people have 2 similar expressions: "in the blink of an eye" and "in the wink of an eye".
2 English worlds which are similar by the pronunciation and by the physical movement.
> catch someone's eye
I'd say that for an object, the French rather say "ça attire l'oeil" and for a person we would prefer "elle m'a tapé dans l'oeil"... what do you think?
> half an eye
un oeil
I'd say that "je ne regarde que d'un oeil", do you have better?
The English still pay less attention than the French :)The En expression may have been created by a one-eyed person.
> in the eye of the storm
Dans l'oeil du cyclone
Do the French use this expression in the figurative meaning? I guess not, comments?
> in one mind's eye
???
> in the twinkling of an eye
en un clin d'oeil
A 3rd English expres​sion(for 1 in French) with 3 words sounding similarly.

Hi Gérard, everyone
Do you know this one

go off the rails (informal)
to start behaving strangely or in a way that is not acceptable to society He went off the rails in his twenties and started living on the streets. By the law of probabilities if you have five kids, one of them's going to go off the rails.

French has got a similar expression: "sortir des rails".

I am shocked by this "law of probabilities": do manners taught by parents obey probabilities?? not in my family: nobody ever went to jail in my family tree Laughing

Muriel,

I don't mean probabilities are shocking (they allow to set up theories) but not in the domain of education - parents do have a big role.
I don't think children's behaviors are random; neither do school results (I'm not speaking about genius).

English Idioms


Names of hats. In North America you also often see the so-called Lapp hat, a wool hat with a braided string on each side, and the Greek fisherman's hat, a cap with a braided string across the front.

SWAN SONG: a final performance before dying. May be used for an organization as well as for an individual. The idiom is based on the (erroneous) idea that swans sing before dying. The Guardian (London): <<RIP, American Idol. After 15 seasons of singing, squawking, bitching, Simon Cowell’s V-necks and Ryan Seacrest’s ceaseless smarm, Fox has finally had enough. Following a ratings plummet the network has declared this will be the final season of the singing show that was once nicknamed the Death Star for its ability to wipe out competition. As we prepare for Idol’s swan song, here are our top five moments.>>

Easy peasy: the same as in French.

OUT IN THE STICKS: far out in the country, not near any major city. Of American origin, but now more widely used. Oxford Mail (UK): << She said: “The manager at the time said ‘I’ve got just the job for you’ because the majority of my passengers are old-age pensioners and I’ve never looked back.

“I love my job. The routes I do are out in the sticks – Chinnor, Thame, Watlington. It’s more or less the same bus every day so you get to know the passengers.” >>

RED MEAT: strong material in a speech, designed to whip up enthusiasm in a crowd of supporters. This is American, and it's showing up frequently in writings about American supporters. Slate.com: <<Among conservatives, Cruz is popular and influential. He led House Republicans in a politically quixotic but financially successful drive to shut down the government in opposition to Obamacare, and he plays well with conservative audiences, who devour his blend of red meat and erudition. (He likes to cite philosopher John Rawls, for example). >>

If something "plays well," it goes over well, it is well received.

ROBBING THE CRADLE: marrying or being in a relationship with someone much younger. This idiom has a critical flavor. Fashion & Style:
<<Ana Barbara Robbing The Cradle With New Boyfriend 15 Years Younger Than Her?
Mexican grupero singer Ana Barbara is 43-years-old but she's clearly young at heart. The Latin Grammy winning singer, model and TV personality is currently in a relationship with a new boyfriend 15 years her junior.
According to reports from Univision, the two lovebirds were seen shopping happily in Los Angeles. Ana Barbara is still a stunning beauty even at her age, and she seemed very affectionate and comfortable with her 28-year-old new love.>>
