    major on

    Hello

    I try not to major on self-loathing but it does creep in every so often.

    --- Does "major on" here means the same as "major in" eg. maths?

    If you dont know what it means (nor do I, by the way, but I imagine your guess is right), I should just avoid it.

    It looks horribly American to me.
