    Exclamation Idioms

    Hi there,

    im doubt about how to use idioms. For an example, Easy come, easy go how do you use it when you speaks to someone?

    Besides that Rip off, take off and etc consider as idioms?

    Re: Idioms

    Easy come, easy go- this tells people not to worry about things, usually money

    Rip off, etc- phrasal verbs are a type of idiom because the dictionary definitions of the individual words don't add up to the meaning of the words together. People often call them idiomatic, as a halfway house description.
