I love analyzing my native language, American English, and helping non-native speakers make sense of it. I've been doing this for fun with friends who speak English as a second language for nearly 30 years. I would like to first thank A.D., C.F. and E.A., and now P.G., for inspiring me to finally write this stuff down!

To go off on someone
'To go off on someone' means to tell someone how angry you are about something they did.
-So what did she say?
-She totally went off on me, saying how immature and irresponsible I am.
