Hello and welcome to another Daily Dose of English. Today’s Daily Dose of English is about… Arm
Arm yourselves, men! We’re going into battle.
Arms are the things which our hands are attached to, and arms is also the term for weapons. Guns, knives, swords, spears, bows and arrows are all arms.
And arm is used in many idiomatic expressions in English, too. An idiom is an expression whose meaning is difficult to get from the words alone.
