The hand has been the same symbol through ages and in many cultures. There are hundreds of the expressions and combinations of words using hand in the English language. Let us examine some expressions that use hand.

We will get a hand in this way. “to get a hand in” is to began a job, to began to know something about it. When you learn the job completely, it will be easy for us. We will be able to do hands down. If we do the job well, we may end up with the upper hand. That means to be in control or to have gain complete understanding of the situation. On the other hand, if the situation gets out of hand, then it’s out of control. We must act quickly to regain the upper hand.

Over these expressions but wait, we still do not have the upper hand in this business, we must consider another way to express praise “to hand it to someone”. For example, I must hand it to you for understanding what we had discoursed this far. You can also lend a hand to someone but without really giving up your hand. You lend a hand when you help someone, you offer them a help hand. If someone is kind enough to lend his hand then we surely don’t want to bend the hand that fesses//. We don’t want to repay this kindness by treading it badly.

Now with that out of way, we have a free hand to continue examining other hand expressions. “to have a free hand” in this situation is a good. It means you are free to act without get permission from someone else. If we continue move along, we will may progress “hand over fist” or very rapidly. This expression began in the early 1600s. it reportedly came from a sailing expression. ”hand over hand” the way of quickly raising or lowing the sail.

May be you can find a friend who want to take a hand in our project. It must be someone who is interested in these expressions. Your friend may want to work handing glove with us. That is good, because that means that he want to work closing with us as a glove covers the hand. Of cause there is a danger that he may look at our project and decide to take it in hand. That means he wants to take it over. If that happens, we may through up our hands because the situation seems hopeless. In that, we may decide that is the time for us to end this project to washing our hands of hand expression.

We will get a hand in this way. To get a hand in is to begin a job to begin to know some thing about it. When we learn the job completely it will be easy for us. We will be able to do it hands down. If we do the job well, we may end up with the upper hand. That means to be in control or to have gain complete understanding of a situation.

 

On the other hands, if the situation gets out of hand then it is out of control we must act quickly to regain the upper hand over the expressions. But wait, we still do not have the upper hand in this business. We must consider another way of express praise to hand it to some one, for examining, I must hand it to you for understanding what we have discussed this far. You can also lend a hand to some one but without really giving up your hand. You lend a hand when you help some one. You offer them a helping hand. If some one is kind enough, to lend us a hand than we surely do not want to bite the hand that fits us we do not want to repay his kindness by treating him badly.

 

Now with that out of the way, We have a free hand to continuing exampling other hand expression. To have a free hand in an situation is good. It means you are free to act without getting permission from someone else. If we continue moving along we will make progress hand over fist or very rapitly. This expression began in an early 17 hundreds. It reportly comes from a sailing expression. Hand over hand the way of quickly raising or lowing a sail.

 

Maybe you can find a friend who wants to take a hand in our project. It will have to be someone who is interested in these expressions. Your friend may want to work hand in glove with us. That is good because that means he wants to work as closely with us as glove covers the hand. Of course there is a danger that he may look at our project and decide to take it in hand. That means he wants to take it over. If that happens we may throw out our hands because the situation seems hopeless. In that, we may decide that is time for us to end this project to wish our hands and hand expression.
