    Re: Arm and a leg

    the same idiom is said like "Kol gibi girdi" in Turkish :)))
    It is over slang (ı m not sure this expression is true or not)
    because it is approximately a swearing

    I think it is very expensive. A cost of arm and a leg, don't you think so?

    The word 'kol' in the Turkish slang "kol gibi girdi" has nothing to do with the word 'arm' in "costs an arm and a leg", though. :)

    I bought a cellphone for an arm and a leg but broke down a week after.

    very expensive would be more like a 'left kidney' than just an arm and a leg
