What’s an IDIOM?🤔

An idiom is a phrase or expression that presents a meaning attached to the phrase. An idiom figurative meaning is literally different from the sentence. 

イディオムとは?単語における一定の配列での連結の総称である。言語の類型によっては、単語に準ずる形態素や表意性を持つ文字がこの役割を担うこともある。この連結によって、慣習的に用例と意味が固定しており、字面から意味を推測できないことも多い。(ソース → IDIOM)
