    Default Hello, everyone!

    I'm very glad to join you. Because I'm very interested in English language. I want to ask you a question. "Is there any classification of English proverbs or idioms?" AND "Is there any difference between the proverb and idiom?"
    I'm looking forward to your reply.

    A proverb is a fixed saying, while an idiom is a wider term for anything where the meaning of the phrase is ot the same as the meaning of the individual words. They can be categorised by theme: http://www.usingenglish.com/referenc...s/category.php
