“Head Idioms” – Idiomatic Phrases Using The Word, “Head”
(Closet Classics #9)
As with all “Closet Classics“ this is an up-dated and refreshed, re-post from long ago and far far away. As I have mentioned before, I do not agree with the term “Idiom” as a separate grammatical term, but, since most people have been taught that an Idiom is an actual “thing” I am keeping the title. That, and because that is the term which is used in the video.
Phrases Used In The Video
- (to be) “Like Banging (one’s) Head Against A (brick)/ The Wall” – This is an Idiomatic and Prepositional Adjectival Phrase which is, well… pretty much like he said… but read my description too 😉 –
- (to have One’s) “Head In The Clouds“ – This is an Idiomatic and Prepositional Adjectival Phrase which is used to describe more situations that the teacher in the video explained –
- (to) “Have An Old Head On New Shoulders” – This is not a phrase that I had heard before watching this video, but from his description and logical deduction (assuming that when he says, “acts like an old person” that he doesn’t mean: walking slow, complaining about health problems, and being technologically illiterate despite having a strangely awkward addiction to facebook) – then this phrase is very similar to the Idiomatic Adjectival Phrase… (to be) “Wise Beyond One’s Years” –
Have An Excellent Day!
