I would like to the meaning of this idiom"CHIN DOWN" whose meaning I can't find. I have been looking it up in many books but I can't find, but I don't give up. My e-mail is EMAIL REMOVED - Send PM to This User Instead.
I'm not trying to offend or argue with you mykwyner. I may sound like I'm challenging you but I would never do that I'm merely asking here.
I found this site by typing "paralyzed from the chin down" in google. As this was the only site I found with the exact match I suppose the expression isn't common at best. And not all people use correct English in the sea of internet so I want you to confirm this. If you tell me this isn't the average English speaker's expression I will take your word for it.
I should learn to speak in absolutes less frequently. Of course somebody can be paralyzed from the chin down, and if it can happen, then someone can say it. I should have said that I have never heard anyone say it.
By the way, you can challenge me any time you want. That is my rule with all of my students. I'm proud of them when they are right and I am wrong. Not happy, mind you, just proud.
