    Re: Expressions

    You pay through the nose if you pay a very high price.

    Re: Expressions

    We do not pay through the eye in English. Where did you see this expression?

    Note my corrections above. You must leave a space after every full stop and capitalise the first letter of proper nouns (such as languages). There was no need to put the sentence you were querying in capital letters in post 1.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
