English Idiomatic Expressions

An idiom is an expression whose meaning is not compositional, 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. ESL students can also use this quiz for understanding sentences like idioms.
