day and age


day and age
Фраза in this day and age («в этот день и век») проникла в английский язык в 1940-е гг. и сейчас активно используется косноязычными людьми, страдающими бедностью словарного запаса. Эта фраза означает nowadays (сейчас, теперь) или at the present time (в настоящее время), и английский язык не станет беднее, если она исчезнет из употребления.
