    Idioms

    An idiom is an expression whose meaning is not compositional—that is, whose meaning does not follow from the meaning of the individual words of which it is composed. For example, the English phrase to kick the bucket means to die. A listener knowing the meaning of kick and bucket will not thereby be able to predict that the expression can mean to die. Idioms are often, though perhaps not universally, classified as figures of speech.

    Native speakers of English use idioms all the time, often without realising that they are doing so. This means that communication with native speakers of English can be quite a confusing experience.

    Idioms (I may say) are very close to slang English or sometimes they are the same, and our dear sister lammosh has posted an entire post about this a while back

    Examples of idioms and their meanings


    1* Idiom= "You're busy, so you'll need to keep an eye on the time.
    Remember that we have to leave at 4:30."

    Meaning= keep an eye on: check something regularly.1

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2* Idiom= "Bill, you're too careless with your work. I'm fed up with
    apologizing for your mistakes!"1

    Meaning= be fed up with (with someone or something): be out of patience (with someone or something);
    be very tired of someone or something.1

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3* Idiom= "No, we weren't talking about anything important.
    We were just shooting the breeze."1

    Meaning= shoot the breeze: make relaxed, casual conversation.1
