Idiomatic Phrases Using The Word: “Arm”

[su_dropcap style=”flat”]F[/su_dropcap]or 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…
[su_dropcap style=”flat”]I[/su_dropcap] have come to fully dis-agree with the use of the word, “Idiom“ 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 term, “Idiom“ only in an adjectival way to describe the phrase which is “idiomatic”.

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.
