Your style is vivid and you are overall a very good teacher. You made a slight mistake, though : to “wax” lyrical (or angry or…) has nothing to do with candles made of wax. TO WAX is an old word which means TO GROW (angry, etc…). The opposite is TO WANE (to diminish ; e.g. the moon is waxing / the moon is waning. Hence “a WAN smile” : a weak or sad smile. All the best

    Thank you for the correction, lexandre! You’re quite right about “wax”. (In German, “to grow” is “wachsen”.)

    I looked up “wane” and “wan”, and the connection is less clear. “To wane” comes from roots that mean “lacking” or “decreasing”. “Wan”, oddly, used to mean “dark”.

    To make things more confusing, there’s also “wain”, which is an old-fashioned form of the word “wagon”.

I am wondering there is much better way to explain these phrasal verbs in clear manner.Most of the words that he is explaining looks like he himself doesn’t have clarity on it.
