Idioms Meaning is a page dedicated to the meaning of the word "idiom"
and a discussion of some English idioms and proverbs and their meanings
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 necessarily be
able to predict that the expression can mean to die. Idioms are often,
though perhaps not universally, classified as figures of speech.
