what does this mean?
I came across this on facebook and it's written by a native speaker of English:
What I wouldn't give for a personal subscription to the Canadian Modern Language Review . .
What does it exactly mean? Is there a set phrase/structure here?
Re: what does this mean?
"What I wouldn't give for..." is a fixed construction. It means "I would give anything, no matter how high the cost, for ...", i.e, "I would like it very much".
