    Re: Move

    -- It was a good move to bring his striker bowler in -- "Move" in this sentence means "plan" or "action".

    --A Mother of all sth [ this election is the mother of all elections ]-- "Mother of all" means the most important or deciding factor of something.

    -- that is the mother and father of all sth-- I haven't heard anyone saying this phrase. Maybe the moderators or other members will be able to help.
