Idioms and Their Meanings
Summary: Whether you are a professional writer, teacher or a student we often come across idioms without their meanings! This is what makes the structure of the idiom seem funny and irrelevant, at times. However, every idiom in the English language has a story, observation or an incident preceding it. Using idioms in writings, speeches and in daily conversations has become an artistic style of communicating. An idiom is a structured expression and with a fixed meaning, irrespective of the meanings of the words in it. The page offers a compendium of idioms and their meanings for teachers and for all students across all levels who are as keen as a mustard to know more about idioms.
