“Arm Idioms” – Idiomatic Phrases Using The Word, “Arm”


Arms - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!


(Closet Classics #6)


For those of you who have been around a while, you may remember this video being posted back in 2015, but it was necessary to update it, because…

I have come to fully dis-agree with the use of the wordIdiom as a separate and single grammatical term (actually it is a Lexical Term.)  The reason for this is simple.  Every singe so-called Idiom is also some other form of a phrase and therefore, it would be far more appropriate, and lead to a much clearer comprehension of them to instead use the termIdiom only in an adjectival way to describe the phrase which is idiomatic.  (for a more thorough description  of this, Click Here.)

However, at least for the time being, it is far more common for people to search for Idioms, than to search for Idiomatic Phrasal Verbs or Idiomatic Adjectival Phrases, and so-on…  Thus the title.


Enjoy The Video Lesson!

P.S. – Though there is often a difference in meaning and usage between British and American English, nearly all of the idioms in this series fall into that wonderful (albeit small) category of things which we sometimes-warring (or at least bickering) cousins can agree upon…  like the fact that the Germans’ love for David Hasselhoff is a bit strange.
