Hello!

I spent some time this afternoon trying to find out the origin of the phrase above. No joy:eek:
Could you please (PLEASE) direct me to a comprehensive etymological site:)

Thank you

    Greetings Smorodina,

    Have a look at this one.
    Although it doesn't have the phrase in question, it's a very useful site.
    http://www.wordorigins.org/

    The OED, or Oxford English Dictionary also has good etymological feature.

    I suggest you type etymology into Google or another search enginge, and look around for a site that pleases you.

    Cheers,
    Cuchufléte

    Thank you, Cuchufléte:)

    I still cannot find anything apart from "tables on offer" in abundance. I'll try again in the morning (I am on the mission now:)).

    Best of luck. You might try sending a Private Message to Focalist. He knows lots of good etymological sources.
