What is an idiom ?


Idiom is an expression whose meaning is different from the meanings of the individual words in it.
There are estimated to be at least 25,000 idiomatic expressions in the English language. For instance, the idiom “beating around the bush” means to hint or discuss obliquely; nobody is literally beating any person or thing, and the bush is a metaphor.
