    I might be able to help you if I could understand what you mean. Try to rewrite your message in standard English.

    Default Re: about idioms and phrases.

    Please write your post again, following the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not use textspeak/chatlish. "U" is not a word. It's "you". "pl dnt" means nothing.

    Check your spelling too. Try to find "querry" in a dictionary.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
