Italian idioms II

TermDefinition
SECONDO LE REGOLE by the book
GLI ALTI PAPAVERI the top brass
COMPLETAMENTE AL VERDE flat broke
GUASTARSI to break down
FARE IRRUZIONE to break in
DARE UNA SPOLVERATINA to brush up on
NEL COMPLESSO by and large
PIOVERE A CATINELLE to rain cats and dogs
METTERSI IN PARI to catch up with (something)
IL DEGNO FIGLIO DEL PROPRIO PADRE a chip off the old block
LA MOSCA AL NASO a chip on one's shoulder
Fanno tutto secondo le regole They do everything by the book
E una cosa che devono decidere gli alti papaveri That's something for the top brass to decide
Sono completamente al verde I'm flat broke
Il camion si è guastato The lorry broke down
I ladri hanno fatto irruzione prima dell'alba The thieves broke in before dawn
Devo dare una spolveratina al mio francese I must brush up on my French
Nel complesso è stata una buona estate By and large, it's been a good summer
Non potemmo uscire perchè pioveva a catinelle We couldn't go out because it was raining cats and dogs
Mi voglio mettere in pari con il mio lavoro questa fine settimana I want to catch up on my work this weekend
Con la sua passione per la storia, Enrico è degno figlio del proprio padre With his passion for history, Henry is a chip off the old block
E difficile andare d'accordo con lui; ha sempre la mosca al naso He's hard to get along with; he always has a chip on his shoulder
