From birth to death, the word 'kick' has been given an important part in expressing human experience. The proud and happy mother feels the first signs of life kicking inside her womb. And that same life, many years later comes to its end in the widely used expression 'to kick the bucket' meaning to die.

The expression 'to kick the bucket' is almost two hundred years old. One belief is that it started when an English stableman committed suicide by hanging himself where standing on a pail or bucket. He put a rope around his neck, and tied it to a beam in ceiling, and then kicked the bucket away from under him. After a while, to die in any way with called 'kicking the bucket'.

Another old expression that comes from England is 'to kick over the traces', meaning to resist the commands of one's parents or to oppose or reject authority. Traces were the chains that held a horse or a mule to a wagon or plow. Sometimes, an animal rebelled and kicked over the traces..

The word 'kick' sometimes is used to describe a complaint or some kind of dissatisfaction. Workers, for example, kick about long hours and low pay. There are times when workers are forced to kick back some of their wages to their employers as part of their job. This kick back is illegal, so is another kind of 'kick back' -- a secret payment made by supplier to an official who buy supplies for a government or company.

'Kick around' is the phrase that is heard often in American English. A person who is 'kicked around' is someone who is treated badly. Usually, he's not really be kicked by somebody's foot. He is just not being treated with the respect that all of us want. A person who has kicked around for most of his life is someone who has spent his life moving from place to place. In this case, kicking around means moving often from one place to another.

Kick around has the third meaning when you used it with the word idea. When you kick around an idea, you are giving that idea some thought. There is no physical action when you kick a person upstairs, although the pain can be as strong. You kick a person upstairs by removing him from an important job and giving him a job that sounds more important but really is not.

Still another meaning of the work 'kick' is to free oneself of a bad habit, such as smoking cigarettes, health companies urge smokers to kick the habit.
