‘Idioms are the salt and pepper of any language’ - A.Makkai, prof. of English and Linguistics, University of Illinois.
There are thousands of idioms, proverbs and “special” words, but there are only two ways to memorize them: living in an English-speaking country or watching videos from our library.
Don't be surprised that we provide examples not only of idioms, but also sayings and quotations of famous people, and even just exotic words. What's the point of having a discussion about what an idiom is? Our goal is to provide living examples explaining the use of 'strange' words and constructions.
Since idioms, metaphors, proverbs, similes and fixed expressions belong to the non-literal or figurative language, then it seems difficult to identify an idiom from the other forms of figurative language, but although there are some similarities between idioms and other forms of non- literal language, some differences are obvious, and thus, one can recognize an idiom quite easily" (from the article "Idioms -Grammaticallity and Figurativeness" by Claudea Leah).
Language as a system of communication has literal and figurative meanings. While the literal meaning is the direct reference of words or sentences to objects, the figurative sense is used for giving an imaginative description or a special effect. Such a meaning characterizes notions like metaphors, similes, proverbs and idioms. Idioms, as means of non-literal language, have a great extent use in everyday language. They carry a metaphorical sense that makes their comprehension difficult, since their meaning cannot be deduced from the meaning of their constituent parts. The frequent, spontaneous and appropriate use of idioms is usually a mark of good English, and an indicator of native or near native mastery of the language. Although the idiomatic expressions are not always grammatical, they are established, accepted and used by native speakers of the language with a fixed structure and meaning. Taking all these into account, the present paper aims at highlighting some aspects regarding grammatical features implied in the structure of idioms, as well as some connections between idioms and other forms of figurative language.
Language is considered to be a system of communication, used by a particular community of speakers, which has literal and figurative meanings. While the literal meaning is the direct reference of words or sentences to objects, the figurative sense is used for giving an imaginative description or a special effect. Therefore, the meaning of individual words in an expression has nothing to do in the comprehension of the whole meaning. Such a meaning characterizes notions like metaphors, similes, proverbs and idioms. Among these, idioms have a great extent use in everyday language, and they are considered as one of the most frequently used means of non-literal language.
