THE DICTIONARY OF VITAL EXPRESSIONS is a reference tool based on the classical reasoning of Aristotle and other rhetoricians i.e. the importance of metaphor in persuasive communication. The metaphor is so essential in discourse that it has many synonyms BIdioms, figures, figures of speech, phrases, clause, tropesBall explored in this work.

The work is a uniquely practical contribution to rhetorically oriented communication. It contains first-tier metaphorsCthe most important entries that bring resultsBas well as an expression awareness program that encourages the use of expressions that strengthen discussion or argument and clear definitions and historical examples for each major entry. Multiple indexes and cross referencing create an excellent retrieval system for the user. In short all contemporary methodologies are employed to enhance expressions that convince and persuade the reader and listener.
