    Expressions needed (not idioms)

    Hello,

    I'm looking for a textbook, pdf or website where I can find examples of English expressions. Examples:

    for what it's worth, on the verge of, to be on good terms with, so much for, if only, out of consideration for, to the best of my knowledge, etc

    Please note I don't need "idioms" (e.g. beat around the bush, cry over spilt milk, etc).

    Can you help? Thanks

    Have you tried googling "common/popular English expressions"?

    Also, try searching for "English expressions" in the Books section of the Amazon website. There are lots for sale.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
