Attention: I'm not a teacher

Hi it is never too late,
over again (idiom)once more, again, anew as in



The conductor had them start the symphony over again.


over again - the adverb has one meaning: anew


all over again = all anew , anew all


But from 390 to 405 Jerome switched to translating directly from the Hebrew, and translated anew all 39 books in the Hebrew Bible.


I'd play a video of an England match and upset myself all over again .
When I saw Farrah lying there safe it was like giving birth all over again .
As soon as the next over starts, the work begins all over again .
No doubt there is something to be said for beginning this task all over again , and for using a new technique for the purpose.
They will then start all over again and go round the cockpit a second or even a third time.
After four years away from the game, I'm learning all over again .

Regards.

V.

Idiom is a group of words in a fixed order that have a particular meaning that is different from the meanings of each word understood on its own.

Phrasal verb is a verb in combination with a preposition or adverb or both that have a particular meaning that is different from the meanings of each word understood ot irs own.

Idioms can consist of pfrasal verbs but not the other way around.

Phrasal verbs do not have (well they sometimes do) fixed structure as idioms do (always).

Your question is very interesting by the way.:up:

Idioms often come in a fixed order, but many have variations and can work, say, with different verbs. You can be on cloud nine or cloud seven, pennies can become cents, and 'all talk and trousers' became 'all talk and no trousers' as it migrated from the north of England.
