Dont Actually Break Your Leg - Common English Idioms Explained

Break A Leg! One of the recent lessons I gave to my English Language Learners involved English idioms and their origins. An idiom is a saying that does not mean what the words literally express, but rather it has some representative meaning behind the words. Often, the reasons for the meanings of idioms are obscure; in this post, I will try to bring to light a few commonly used idioms and where they come from. Break A Leg! If you are not a native English speaker and someone told you to break your leg, you might be offended, or at least somewhat confused. This saying serves as an expression of good luck wishes to an actor or actress before they go on stage for a performance. Of course, the intended message is opposite what the words imply: we do not actually wish for an actress to break her leg during a show. Instead, we hope that the show will run smoothly, without injury or mishap, and that the actress will give a great performance. The rumor is that this phrase initially arose out of a superstition that saying good luck to a performer would in turn bring bad luck. To avoid such an outcome, people began to use this phrase to make the contrary true: by wishing bad luck, the actor would receive good luck. In fact, English is not unique for having this particular idiom. In the Italian version, the same logic applies. Wishing someone buona fortuna (the literal version of good luck) is considered unlucky. Instead, one wishes another "in bocca al lupo" which means "in the mouth of the wolf." It is said that the phrase comes from hunters who wanted to compensate for the risk of being devoured by their prey by expressing the very thing they hoped would not happen (that the hunter ended up in the wolf's mouth). The corresponding response is, accordingly, "crepi il lupo" or "may the wolf die" – this with the hope that the hunter will win in the end. In a more general sense, it is a good luck wish to someone about to meet a conflict or an adversary face to face. To Feel A Bit Under the Weather Many of my students thought that the image this phrase conjures up suggested that it meant to be unlucky, to feel emotionally down and out, or to face lots of unfortunate circumstances that all occur at once. In reality, it means to feel a little sick, physically. The term comes from sailors who, during a storm, would feel seasick when the boat began to rock in extreme weather. As a result, they would go below deck, where they were safer from the dangers of the storm, such as lightning. Thus, being under the weather (in the lower level of the boat) equated to feeling seasick because of that weather. Beat Around The Bush "Are you going to the mall today?" "Yes." "Are you going by car?" "Yes..." "Oh, that's funny, because I was also hoping to go to the mall today but I unfortunately don't have my own car...so it would be really great if I could somehow get a ride...." This is the example I used to demonstrate beating around the bush, an idiom that my students had not heard of but were able to recognize based on this brief example dialogue. It means to speak around the central point, rather than addressing it directly. This phrase also comes from hunting, for hunters would hit the ground surrounding a bush where birds were hiding, to scare them out and into the air where they could become easy targets. Once In A Blue Moon Something that happens once in a blue moon happens very rarely. For example: Our family eats out once in blue a moon, but almost always we prefer to cook at home. The origin of this phrase comes from the definition of blue moon. According to the dictionary, a blue moon is the second full moon to occur within the same calendar month. Usually, the moon appears completely full one time per month, but occasionally there is a second full moon appearance – every 32 months, to be precise. Hear It Through The Grapevine If Sarah told Sophie who told Andrea who told me that a mutual friend had just gotten engaged, I would say I heard it through the grapevine, meaning that I found out about this piece of news through many other people. I did not learn it from the source itself (the bride-to-be, in this example) but rather I heard it indirectly after it was passed from one person to another. It is often used to refer to a piece of gossip or to a story whose truth may or may not yet be confirmed. The origin of this phrase dates back to the mid 1800s, when the invention of the telegraph changed the popular mode of communication. The wires of the telegraphs, it was said, resembled the intertwined stems of a grapevine, and thus represented the process of passing on a message from one point along the line to another.

Battleship Admiral Graf Spee in World War II

Admiral Graf Spee was a Deutschland-class panzerschiffe (armored ship) that entered service with the German Kriegsmarine in 1936. Largely designed to meet the restrictions imposed by the Treaty of Versailles, Admiral Graf Spee and the others of its class were often referred to as pocket battleships because of their powerful armament of 11-inch guns. At the beginning of World War II, the vessel was sent to the South Atlantic to serve as commerce raider. It proved successful in this role and soon was hunted down by a British squadron. After taking damage at the Battle of the River Plate on December 13, 1939, Admiral Graf Spee sought refuge in the neutral port of Montevideo, Uruguay. Blocked by neutrality laws from making repairs and facing a superior British force, Captain Hans Langsdorff elected to scuttle the ship rather than let it be interned in Uruguay. Design A Deutschland-class panzerschiffe (armored ship), Admiral Graf Spees design was intended to nominally conform to the naval restrictions set forth by the Treaty of Versailles which ended World War I. These limited future German warships to 10,000 long tons. Though the vessels of Deutschland-class exceeded this displacement, the German designers devised numerous methods to reduce weight. These included the incorporation diesel propulsion and the large-scale use of welding. The class armament centered on six 11-inch guns mounted in two triple turrets. As a result, the Deutschland-class ships were able to deliver a potent attack despite their relatively small size. As a result of this, they became know in other navies as pocket battleships. Capable of around 28 knots, they were able to out-gun many of the foreign warships that were fast enough to catch them. Vice Admiral Maximilian von Spee. Public Domain Construction Laid down at Reichsmarinewerft in Wilhelmshaven on October 1, 1932, the new panzerschiffe was named for Vice Admiral Maximilian Reichsgraf von Spee who had defeated the British at Coronel on November 1, 1914, before being killed at the Battle of the Falklands a month later. Launched on June 30, 1934, the vessel was sponsored by the late admirals daughter. Work continued on Admiral Graf Spee for another eighteen months. Commissioned on January 6, 1936, with Captain Conrad Patzig in command, new cruiser drew much of its crew from the old battleship Braunschweig. Departing Wilhelmshaven, Admiral Graf Spee spent the early part of the year conducting sea trials. Upon their completion, it was designated flagship of the German Navy.

After conducting three patrols over the next ten months, the cruiser put into Spithead in late May 1937 to take part in the Coronation Review for King George VI. At the conclusion of the ceremonies, Admiral Graf Spee returned to Spain where it relieved its sister ship, Admiral Scheer. Returning home late in the year, it participated in fleet maneuvers and made a goodwill call to Sweden. Following a final non-intervention patrol in early 1938, command of the ship passed to Captain Hans Langsdorff in October. Embarking on a series of goodwill visits to Atlantic ports, Admiral Graf Spee also appeared in a naval review in honor of Hungarian regent Admiral Miklà ³s Horthy. After visits to Portuguese ports in the late spring of 1939, the ship returned to Wilhelmshaven. Admiral Graf Spee at Spithead for King George VIs coronation review, 1937. Public Domain World War II Begins Anticipating the beginning of World War II, German leader Adolf Hitler ordered Admiral Graf Spee to sail for the South Atlantic to be in position to attack Allied shipping. Departing Wilhelmshaven on August 21, Langsdorff steered south and rendezvoused with his supply ship, Altmark, on September 1. Alerted to the beginning of hostilities, he was directed to stringently adhere to prize law when attacking merchant vessels. This required the raider to search ships for war materials before sinking them and ensuring the safety of their crews. On September 11, one of Admiral Graf Spees floatplanes spotted the heavy cruiser HMS Cumberland. Successfully evading the British ship, Langsdorff received orders on September 26 directing him to initiate a campaign of commerce raiding against Allied shipping. On September 30, the cruisers floatplane sank the steamer Clement. To ensure the crews safety, Langsdorff radioed Brazilian naval authorities and informed them of the attack. Alerted to the presence of a German raider in the South Atlantic the Royal and French Navies formed eight groups consisting of four carriers, two battleships, one battlecruiser, and sixteen cruisers to hunt down Langsdorff. Raiding On October 5, Admiral Graf Spee captured Newton Beach and two days later sank the cargo vessel Ashlea. Though the former initially was used as a prisoner transport, it proved too slow and was soon discarded. Taking Huntsman on October 10, Langsdorff retained the steamer and took it to a rendezvous with Altmark a week later. Transferring prisoners to his supply ship, he then sank Huntsman. After sinking Trevanion on October 22, Langsdorff steered for the Indian Ocean in an attempt confuse his pursuers. Sinking the tanker Africa Shell on November 15, Admiral Graf Spee turned for the Atlantic in order to refuel from Altmark. While rendezvousing on November 26, the cruisers crew made efforts to alter the ships silhouette by building a fake turret and a dummy funnel. Continuing his campaign, Langsdorff sank the freighter Doric Star on December 2. In the course of the attack, the Allied ship was able to radio for aid and relay its position. Receiving this, Commodore Henry Harwood, commanding the Royal Navys Force G, steered for the River Plate anticipating that this area would be Admiral Graf Spees next target. Harwoods command consisted of the heavy cruiser HMS Exeter and the light cruisers HMS Ajax (flagship) and HMS Achilles. Also available to Harwood was Cumberland which was refitting in the Falkland Islands. The sinking of Doric Star was quickly followed by an attack on the refrigerator ship Tairoa. Meeting a final time with Altmark on December 6, Langsdorff sank the freighter Streonshalh the next day. On board, his men found shipping information that led him to decide to move against the River Plate estuary. Battle of the River Plate On December 13, Admiral Graf Spee spotted masts off the starboard bow. While Langsdorff first believed these to be convoy escorts reports soon informed him that it was a British squadron. Electing to fight, he ordered his ship to maximum speed and closed with the enemy. This proved a blunder as Admiral Graf Spee could have stood off and hammered the out-ranged British warships with its 11-inch guns. Instead, the maneuver brought the cruiser within range of Exeters 8-inch and the light cruisers 6-inch guns. Admiral Graf Spee enters Montevideo harbor following the Battle of the River Plate, December 1939. Public Domain With the enemys approach, Harwood implemented a battle plan which called for Exeter to attack separately from the light cruisers with the goal of splitting Langsdorffs fire. At 6:18 AM, Admiral Graf Spee opened the Battle of the River Plate by firing on Exeter with its main guns while its secondary armament targeted Ajax and Achilles. Over the next half hour, the German vessel hammered Exeter disabling both its forward turrets and starting several fires. In return, the British cruiser hit Admiral Graf Spees fuel processing system with an 8-inch shell. Though his ship appeared largely undamaged, the loss of the fuel processing system limited Langsdorff to sixteen hours of usable fuel. To aid their compatriot, the two British light cruisers closed on Admiral Graf Spee. Thinking the British ships to be making a torpedo attack, Langsdorff turned away. The two sides continued the fight until around 7:25 AM when the action came to an end. Pulling back, Harwood decided to shadow the German ship with the goal of attacking again after dark. Scuttling Entering the estuary, Langsdorff made a political error in anchoring at Montevideo in neutral Uruguay rather than the friendlier Mar del Plata, Argentina to the south. Putting in a little after midnight on December 14, Langsdorff landed his wounded and asked the Uruguayan government for two weeks to make repairs. This was opposed by British diplomat Eugen Millington-Drake who argued that under the 13th Hague Convention Admiral Graf Spee should be expelled from neutral waters after twenty-four hours. Advised that few naval resources were in the area, Millington-Drake continued to press for the ships expulsion publicly while British agents arranged to have British and French merchant ships sail every twenty-four hours. This action invoked Article 16 of the convention which stated A belligerent warship may not leave a neutral port or roadstead until twenty-four hours after the departure of a merchant ship flying the flag of its adversary. As a result, these sailings held Admiral Graf Spee in place while additional naval forces were gathered. Scuttling of Admiral Graf Spee in the River Plate. Public Domain While Langsdorff lobbied for time to repair his ship, he received a variety of false intelligence which suggested the arrival of Force H, including the carrier HMS Ark Royal and battlecruiser HMS Renown. While a force centered on Renown was en route, in reality Harwood had only been reinforced by Cumberland. Completely deceived and unable to repair Admiral Graf Spee, Langsdorff discussed his options with his superiors in Germany. Prohibited from allowing the ship to be interned by the Uruguayans and believing that certain destruction awaited him at sea, he ordered Admiral Graf Spee scuttled in the River Plate on December 17. This decision infuriated Hitler who later directed that all German ships were fight until the end. Taken to Buenos Aires, Argentina with the crew, Langsdorff committed suicide on December 19.

The Epic Of Gilgamesh And Gilgamesh - 845 Words

A hero is a man of extraordinary ability and the courage to do things when others falter in the face of adversity. The role each hero plays in society varies greatly depending on the time period and the gods’ intervention in their worlds. They often possess great strength or other noble abilities. In Gilgamesh we see Enkidu and Gilgamesh blessed with incredible strength so much so that it gets them into trouble. In The Iliad, there are many different heroes each with their own roles and abilities. Some are warriors, others are cunning in nature, and some possess the brute strength that spreads fear in the enemy. In each society, the role of the hero is to inspire those around them and conquer lands or people that stand in their way. Enkidu and Gilgamesh are defined primarily by their strength. They are fortified with bravery and willing to take on even the most impossible of tasks. Gilgamesh decides to kill Humbaba, the guardian of the cedar trees. Enkidu tries to be the voice of reason, but Gilgamesh convinces him death is nothing to fear. Later on Enkidu dies after the gods intervene because of Gilgamesh and Enkidu’s antics and this sends Gilgamesh into a panic, not wanting to die himself. He seeks immortality of the flesh and goes through many trials to get a hold of an immortal plant. His foolishness ultimately costs him his one chance at immortality but a lot is learned.

English Literature Mock IOP Outline Essay Example For Students

English Literature Mock IOP Outline Essay Question: How are Tennessee Williams and Elia Kazan different in their portrayal of Blanche as a character who can be sympathized with? Introduction: * Reading the play one sympathizes less with Blanche than when watching the movie. This is a deliberate choice by the two artists and thus, they use certain means to achieve the effects they want to achieve. * Has got to do with the differences in the art form, the audience and reach as well as the difference in background of the two artists – Tennessee Williams and Elia Kazan. Why do I feel so? * Tennessee Williams portrays Blanche as we would truly imagine her to be – haughty, arrogant, acting to be feeble in the face of danger, easily irritated, always instigating others and truly a double-faced person. With such descriptions we find it hard to sympathize with her. * Instead, we get the feeling that she truly deserves the types of treatment which Stanley gave her (except the final rape, which can never be justified). While it may seem incorrect, there is a great possibility that a large part of the cause of the rape was Blanche herself (constantly demonizing and thus instigating Stanley, trying to turn Stella against him etcetera). * Elia Kazan on the other hand, presents Blanche as a character who can be more sympathized with. In the movie, Blanche is shown to be a truly feeble character. We, as critics of the movie, get the feeling that life has not been fair to Blanche and that she is a creation of circumstances. * We believe that if so much had not gone wrong in her life, Blanche would not have become who she is shown to be in the movie. In this way, we seem to be able to sympathize greatly with Blanche. We see Stanley as being a bully and Blanche the meek victim who cannot seem to ever get out of a mess. How do they do it? * Reading the play we cannot truly understand the sentiments and emotions that are going through Blanche’s mind. This way there is a slight personal bias which comes into the picture. In other words, when reading the play, I see Blanche the way that I want to see her, and thus my previous experiences and my previous knowledge plays a large hand in shaping her character. * In the movie, on the other hand, we get to see Vivian Leigh act out the character of Blanche. In this way, there is very little or no room for personal bias. Elia Kazan shows us what he wants us to see. Thus, he makes deliberate choices such as perhaps by directing Vivian Leigh to create an aura of uncertainty around her which makes us see her as feeble and meek. Why do they do it? * Tennessee Williams is at large a realist so wants to portray the truth. In such a case, the obvious truth is that no character is perfect, and thus, Blanche has her own flaws which cause us to feel unsympathetic towards her. We tend to only censure her for her flaws and thus, do not empathize with her. * The art form of movie does not lend itself well to realism since it’s almost entirely based upon fiction and what ought to be. With this in mind, we can see why Elia Kazan decided to portray Blanche as being someone we can sympathize with – he is just conforming to his chosen art form’s style. * A play has a smaller reach than a movie. Moreover, it will not be viewed by as wide an audience (in terms of age groups) as a movie. Thus, Tennessee Williams can afford to portray Blanche as being a character who does not deserve our sympathies. Tennessee Williams need not serve any justice since his readers will be mature and can handle the bitter truth of life. .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca , .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca .postImageUrl , .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca .centered-text-area { min-height: 80px; position: relative; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca , .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca:hover , .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca:visited , .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca:active { border:0!important; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca .clearfix:after { content: ""; display: table; clear: both; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca { display: block; transition: background-color 250ms; webkit-transition: background-color 250ms; width: 100%; opacity: 1; transition: opacity 250ms; webkit-transition: opacity 250ms; background-color: #95A5A6; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca:active , .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca:hover { opacity: 1; transition: opacity 250ms; webkit-transition: opacity 250ms; background-color: #2C3E50; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca .centered-text-area { width: 100%; position: relative ; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca .ctaText { border-bottom: 0 solid #fff; color: #2980B9; font-size: 16px; font-weight: bold; margin: 0; padding: 0; text-decoration: underline; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca .postTitle { color: #FFFFFF; font-size: 16px; font-weight: 600; margin: 0; padding: 0; width: 100%; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca .ctaButton { background-color: #7F8C8D!important; color: #2980B9; border: none; border-radius: 3px; box-shadow: none; font-size: 14px; font-weight: bold; line-height: 26px; moz-border-radius: 3px; text-align: center; text-decoration: none; text-shadow: none; width: 80px; min-height: 80px; background: url(https://artscolumbia.org/wp-content/plugins/intelly-related-posts/assets/images/simple-arrow.png)no-repeat; position: absolute; right: 0; top: 0; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca:hover .ctaButton { background-color: #34495E!important; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca .centered-text { display: table; height: 80px; padding-left : 18px; top: 0; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca-content { display: table-cell; margin: 0; padding: 0; padding-right: 108px; position: relative; vertical-align: middle; width: 100%; } .uf7dcb0af6020c0db54b6afc1098536ca:after { content: ""; display: block; clear: both; } READ: Black Death (1096 words) Essay* The movie on the other hand does appeal to a wider audience and thus, Elia Kazan may have deliberately chosen to portray Blanche as being a character who requires our sympathy. Especially considering the ending of the play, where Blanche gets raped, perhaps Kazan wanted to showcase some sort of justice by not demonizing Blanche as much as Tennessee Williams. This is once again caused by the differences in art forms. Conclusion: * Can be clearly seen why and how the two artists decided to portray Blanche in different ways. * Eventually, it comes down to a personal bias – others may have different conclusions from mine since the topic is largely subjective.
