Retired English Teacher
Hi all teachers.
In this sentences
"I'm a purveyor of rare and wondrous objects
And would've done it too, if she hadn't taken a fancy to that locket."
What is the meaning of a fancy to that locket
"Send forth all legions."
what is the meaning of send forth.
Thank you very much all teachers.
The expression you are looking for is 'take a fancy'.
As for 'send forth'... Perhaps you retired from teaching before the invention of the dictionary.
PS I detect some influence from French. What you want is an 'explanation'.
PPS Forgive me for not noticing this was your first post; I was a little brusque! ;-; 'Forth' is a nearly-extinct preposition that means, roughly, 'away'. It is chiefly seen in the collocations 'go forth' and 'send forth'.
