    How much is the fish?

    Good night everyone!

    I can translate a sentence: "how much is the fish?", but I think that it's idiom or has another signification. I'm right? Or Imma paranoiac?

    Please see the changes I have made to your post. I'm not sure what you mean by "I can translate the sentence 'How much is the fish?'" Was the sentence originally written in English and you have translated it into another language? Was it written in another language and you have translated it into English? If it's an idiom, what do you think it means? Why don't you think it has a perfectly literal meaning?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Without more context, I would assume the meaning is literal.
