I saw this expression:
"the aim of the activity is "to show the fly the way out of the fly-bottle". "
(It is connected with this other expression: "I don't know my way about".)
I grasped the general sense of the expression but I don't understand clearly how it is formed, i.e. it's logical analysis (e.g, is "fly" a noun in this case?).
- Which are the logical analysis and the literal meaning of the expression "to show the fly the way out ot the fly-bottle"?
