    Speaking. In writing, we tend to be more descriptive, pedestrian, and literal.

    Re: Idiom dictionary

    If a phrase combines to have a meaning different from the dictionary definition of the words, it has an idiomatic meaning. We can say that something is in the bag and mean that it is a certainty- we are not literally talking here about something in a bag.
