Promise the world
Is this sentence correct:
She told him 'You don't have to promise me the world'?
What does 'promise someone the world' mean? I looked it up in the dictionary and I only found 'promise the moon/ the earth'
Is 'promise the world' correct? and is it used in colloquial english?
Re: Promise the world
I believe that "promising someone the world" has the same meaning as "promising the moon, the Earth."
She told him: "
You don't have to promise me the world!"
I removed the question mark (?) as I didn't see how it would make sense to put one there.
