Hi! Can anybody please tell me if "shame on you" is an idiomatic expression or not? If it is not an idiomatic expression, what is it, then? And if "how dare you" are strong words what would be it's opposite, if there are any? My Korean friend is asking me about these and I cannot answer her.
I would really appreciate it if anybody can help me with these.
Thank you so much.
An idiomatic expression is particular to a culture. If a non-native English speaker can grasp the meaning of "shame on you" then it is not an idiom. My guess is that it is a fixed-expression that's not idiomatic.
I don't know if there is a polite way to express "how dare you", as its intended meaning is suppose to be strong.
Please tell me if "shame on you" is an idiomatic expression... If it's not, what part of speech is it, then? I would really appreciate it if somebody can help me on this... Thank you so much in advance!!!!
