    Re: idiomatic expressions

    Welcome to the forums.


    Most of these are not "idiomatic expressions", but phrases whose meaning will be governed by the context in which they are met. You can look them up on OneLook Dictionary Search

    If this still doesn't help, please provide the full sentence in which you met the word/phrase.
