Not exactly a medical question, but one I have received and need to try
and answer.  Need a good reference for the origin of phrases which have
made their way into our everyday lives.  Currently looking for the origin
of the phrase "The whole nine yards."
 
Any ideas on where this phrase came from.  Also, any suggestions on
titles of books available on this topic.  I have been out of the public
library reference circle to long!
 
TIA
