    Leave everything as it was

    Is "leave everything as it was" an idiom?
    "...the idea ...would cancel all the way through and Leave everything as it was."

    It is idiomatic, but not an idiom in itself.

    Smile Re: Leave everything as it was

    There's a good link in the Language Reference section that takes you to an alpha betical listing of 'idioms' per se. To be idiomatic, I think, implies that you are using a formulaic expression (one that you may have heard before: in this case 'leave everything as it was').

    Cool Re: Leave everything as it was

    Things would be left as they were, untouched.
