    Default English Idioms

    Following the request of a fellow forumer who didn't shows up here again when I asked him , I've decided to made this thread.

    So, what are idioms? Idioms are series of words that have different meanings from their literal ones. They are something like peribahasa in our native language. Idioms are like a way to describe something in a daily conversations.

    Here are some example:

    Piece of cake
    One of the most used idioms. When you say "piece of cake" after you were asked to do a task, it means the task was very easy to complete.
    Example: You want me to kill that man? Piece of cake!

    Out of the blue
    Completely out of nowhere.
    Example: So, I was walking alone the other night. Then suddenly, out of the blue, a man without anything to wear just shows up in front of me!

    Kill two birds with one stone
    It's like completing two task at the same time.
    Example: You went to the Trivium concert? You should totally buy their merchandise there! It's like killing two birds with one stone.




    Some rules to follow :
    1. Using English is a must.
    2. If you want to share some idioms, you have to include a definition and an example, like the ones above.
    3. OOT posts are not allowed.
    4. Warning and infraction applies here, so be careful.

    Default

    Cry over spilled milk
    To complain about a loss in the past.
    Example: Don't you cry over spilled milk, dude! She didn't love you from the start.

    Cut to the chase
    Say something important to the point.
    Example: How about we stop the small talk and cut to the chase?

    Cat got your tongue?
    It is the same as "You got nothing to say?"
    Example:

    "The other day, I met Lisa in the park. She was asking your whereabouts."

    "..."

    "Well, I just told her that you were sleeping all day."

    "..."

    "What's the matter, dude? Cat got your tongue?"
