New Milflores Release


By Lydia Arcellana, Ph.D. and Heidi Emily Eusebio-Abad, M.A. 

Idiomatic expressions can add spice to conversations and written work. However, their improper use can cause embarrassment and confusion.

In this booklet—the thirteenth in Milflores’ best-selling series “Be Your Own English Teacher!” Series—two experts on the English language from the University of the Philippines explain the correct usage of common idioms. They also provide self-learning exercises, and interesting trivia on the origin of some idioms, to help the reader.

Both Lydia R. Arcellana and Heidi Emily Eusebio-Abad teach at UP Diliman’s Department of English & Comparative Literature. Dr. Arcellano has won the Leopoldo Yabes Award for Most Outstanding Associate Professor and is co-author of five other titles of the Miflores English Series. Prof. Abad is co-author of two other titles of the Miflores English Series and writes books for children, for which she has won the Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Award.

“More Idioms” is available in National Bookstore and Power Books branches, in the UP Press Bookstore in UP Diliman, Solidaridad, Popular, and other major bookstores at only P95 per copy.
