BBC Learning English - Friday Phrase / Have a frog in your throat. Untitled. Notes on the origin of ‘easy-peasy (lemon squeezy)’

A reduplication of easy, the colloquial adjective easy-peasy means very straightforward and easy.

notes on the origin of ‘easy-peasy (lemon squeezy)’

According to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED – 3rd edition, 2002), easy-peasy originated in British English; the earliest instance that the OED has recorded is from The Bookseller (London) of Saturday 22nd January 1966. But the earliest occurrence that I have found seems to invalidate that origin. It is from The Cincinnati Enquirer (Cincinnati, Ohio) of Saturday 17th January 1953, in the review by the American journalist Ellis Brownell Radcliffe (1904-77) of Breaking the Sound Barrier (1952), a British film about attempts by aircraft designers and test pilots to break the sound barrier, directed by David Lean, starring Ralph Richardson, Ann Todd and Nigel Patrick: SQEZY TV COMMERCIAL.

Japanese women demand right to wear glasses at work

In the latest protest against rigid rules over women’s appearance, the hashtag “glasses are forbidden” was trending on Twitter in reaction to a Japanese television show that exposed businesses that were imposing the bans on female staff. “These are rules that are out of date,” one Twitter user said, while another described the reasons given by employers as “idiotic”. One woman who works in restaurants tweeted that she was repeatedly told not to wear her glasses because it would appear “rude” and they did not go with her traditional kimono.

“If the rules prohibit only women to wear glasses, this is a discrimination against women,” Kanae Doi, the Japan director at Human Rights Watch, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation on Friday. Earlier this year there was a call for Japanese companies to stop forcing female staff to wear high heels. Jeopardy Jeopardy Template. Idioms Quiz.
