IDIOMS

An idiom is an expression whose meaning is not predictable from the usual meanings of its constituent elements or from the general grammatical rules of a language and that is not a constituent of a larger expression of like characteristics. e.g. kick the bucket or hang one’s head.

Some important list of idioms that will be taught are:

  1. A penny for your thoughts
  2. Add insult to injury
  3. Beat around the bush
  4. Barking up the wrong tree
  5. Cry over split milk
  6. Curiosity killed the cat
  7. In the heat of the moment
  8. Take with a grain of salt
  9. Whole nine yards
  10. Your guess is as good as mine

Whereas, the rest of the list of idioms will be attached in the notebooks.

A link of the idioms worksheet has been attached below as a class activity.
