What Is an Idiom 

An idiom is a statement or a sentence that has a meaning that cannot be discerned or identified by its elements or parts. Instead, the whole statement or sentence will hold a special or specific meaning that may or may not be an allusion to a past event, book, or speech.

How to Use an Idiom In a Sentence

Idioms have a lot of coverage as these sentences can be used to provide a specific intention, lesson, and message in a nuanced and compressed way. If you need references or samples of idioms, you may refer to the idiom templates, love idiom examples, and other idiom samples on the list above.

Step 1: Determine the Context You Will Use the Idiom On

Begin by determining the context you will use the idiom in the sentence. This will determine the various idioms you may be able to use in the sentence.

Step 2: Research a List of Idioms That are Related to the Chosen Context

After you have chosen the overall context and direction the idiom should be in, you must research a list of idioms that have meanings related to the chosen context and direction. Be sure to double-check the meanings of the idioms in the list.

Step 3: Insert the Idiom Into the Sentence

Choose an applicable and appropriate idiom and insert it into the sentence. Be sure that the idiom is properly placed in the statement and creates a complete sentence.

Step 4: Repeat Steps 1 to 3 Until Satisfied

You can choose to repeat steps 1 to 3 until you are satisfied with all the idioms you have used. Be sure to limit and properly pace the idioms you will use in your sentence.

FAQs

There are many examples of popular idioms found around the world that we incorporate into our everyday use. The Spanish idiom “Cuando nieva en Sevilla” or “When it snows in Sevilla” is a popular idiom that people use to denote or outline something that will not happen. “Yí jiàn shuāng diāo” is a famous Chinese idiom, that roughly translates to “One arrow, two vultures”. The idiom’s meaning is very similar to the English idiom called “Hitting two birds with one stone.”, which means doing a specific thing or action that will satisfy two or more purposes or objectives.

Why are some idioms really hard to understand?

Idioms or idiomatic expressions are statements that have a specific meaning, theme, or context when people view the whole statement. The person cannot deduce the overall meaning of the idiom from the individual common nouns, proper nouns, and verbs in the whole statement. Some idioms require the person to understand a specific book, story, allegory, event, or experience before they can understand the meaning of the idiom. For example, the Chinese idiom “jĭng dĭ zhī wā” or the “frog in the bottom of the well” requires the person to know of the story related to this idiom before they can understand the meaning. But there are some idioms that pop culture keeps using to the point that the meaning of the idiom is common knowledge.

What is the difference between an idiom and a proverb?

An idiom is a string of words that will form a statement that has a meaning that is hard to understand or decipher from the individual words in the statement. Some idioms are allusions to their origin, which means that some idioms require further viewing of their source material before they will understand the point of the idiom. Proverbs are sayings that will directly provide input and insight into the person listening or reading the proverb. The main difference between idioms and proverbs is the way they present the learning or advice to the person.

Idioms are statements that act as allusions to a specific story, event, book, or experience. These statements can provide great insight to the people obtaining or viewing these idioms, but this requires great knowledge and understanding of the context of said idioms.
