Abstract

"The expression 'barbarians at the gate' was … used by the Romans to describe foreign attacks against their empire." 1 "[It] is often used in contemporary English within a sarcastic, or ironic context, when speaking about a perceived threat from a rival group of people, often deemed to be less capable or somehow 'primitive.'" 2.
