Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
“This is extremely good port”, he said diplomatically. “an dirt cheap.”
as cheap as dirt = dirt cheap = very cheap
Thanks for your efforts.
Re: dirt cheap
"Dirt cheap" is commonly used, but we rarely say, "As cheap as dirt."
