- For Teachers
ok when someone is talking about cash for example I hate taking back my cans but I sure like the dough. Is it spelled dough or doe? I said doe because dough is bread but some people say its spelled dough for the saying Im rolling in the dough. So for this particular sentence about "but I sure like the dough" how should it be spelled?
Like English '60s slang 'bread' (meaning money), or the expression 'earning an honest crust'.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
There are many other figures of speech that equate food with money - 'worth his salt', 'bring home the bacon', 'put food on the table'. And this doesn't apply only to English; Spanish slang for money is pasta (at least it was when I was there). I expect many other languages do something similar.
