The Real Meanings Behind 28 Common Phrases

Written by

 

In English, what you say, doesn’t always reflect what you mean. There are common phrases that seem rather mundane when taken at face value—but if you scratch beneath the surface, you might discover something else entirely.

HipDict tabs itself as a ‘crowdsourced dictionary’ that lets anybody submit a definition for a common word or phrase. Most are playful but some are tongue-in-cheek and searing with some harsh truths. Below you will find a collection of our personal favourites.
