Hello I am Lilly and I'd like to share the meaning of an Idiom here:

An idiom is the compact group of words that has a metaphorical meaning, basically because of its frequent usage.

An idiom's symbolic sense is quite different from the literal meaning or definition of the words of which it is made. There are a large number of Idioms and they used very commonly in all languages. There are approximately at least 25,000 idiomatic expressions in the English language.

Idioms in fact, evolve the language and they are the building blocks of a language and civilization as well they have great intensity to make a language interesting and dynamic.
