Use this form to suggest an English idiom or slang expression to be included in the UsingEnglish.com idioms database. All submissions are editorially reviewed and verified before being published.
We provide the facility for you to suggest new idioms because we think our users would like to contribute and help make UsingEnglish.com even better. After all, a database is only as good as its content. However, we treat these as suggestions for new content. We may therefore edit or otherwise alter your suggestion to fit with our editorial guidelines, or to expand on the details provided.
