    Ms

    Hi there,
    I have a question concerning the expression "without further ado/adieu" I do not know which word is correct and why.
    Thanks in advance for your input.
    Cheers,
    Zineb

    Welcome to the forums.

    "Without further ado" = without further fuss

    "Ado" is a northern English dialect word that has survived in common usage in this idiom.
