English For Today (October 4, 2018) by Ganiu Abisoye Bamgbose (GAB)

SOME IDIOMS ARE WRONG JUST BY THE SUBSTITUTION OF ONE WORD

Level playing field (not, ground).

To keep up appearances (not, put up).

It takes two to tango (not, tangle).

I rack my brain always (not, crack).

Without mincing words (not, missing).
