We are glad to present to your attention our first book “100 popular phraseological units of the Russian language”!

The book is a collection of 100 of the most popular phraseological units of the Russian language. For each phraseological unit, this book describes the semantic meaning, the scope of application of phraseological units (with examples of their use in speech), as well as the history of their origin.

For each idiom, synonymous expressions of the Russian language were selected, in some cases – foreign analogues.

The frequency of citing phrases in the media and blogs and the number of queries in search engines per month are indicated.
