PART A. INTRODUCTION
The English language is full of idioms. Native speakers of English use idioms all the time, often without realising that they are doing so. This means that communication with native speakers of English can be quite a confusing experience.
We use idioms to express something that other words do not express as clearly or as cleverly. We often use an image or symbol to describe something as clearly as possible and thus make our point as effectively as possible. Sometimes idioms are very easy for learners to understand because there are similar expressions in the speakers' mother tongue. However, idioms can often be very difficult to understand. ...view middle of the document...

Chapter 1: Theoretical basis of the report
1. Idiom definition
An idiom is a phrase which has a different meaning from the meaning of its components.
For example, when we say:"It's raining cats and dogs", we do not mean that cats and dogs are falling from the sky. This amusing expression means that it is raining heavily.
Idioms are basically fixed expressions, which means you cannot change the word order, or the grammatical forms in the same way as you can change non-idiomatic expressions.
Idioms are common both formal and informal spoken and written English.
2. Color BLUE definition
a. Color definition:
Color (or colour) is the visual perceptual property corresponding in humans to the categories called red, green, blue and others. Color derives from the spectrum of light interacting in the eye with the spectral sensitivities of the light receptors. Color categories and physical specifications of color are also associated with objects, materials, light sources, etc., based on their physical properties such as light absorption, reflection, or emission spectra.
b. “Blue” definition:
- Noun: Blue is the color between green and indigo in the rainbow that looks like the clear daytime sky.
An example of blue is the color of the Internet Explorer icon.
- Adjective: Blue means having the color that looks like a clear day sky or being sad.
1. An example of blue used as an adjective is the phrase a "blue shirt" which means a shirt that is that color.
2. An example of blue used as an adjective is the phrase a "blue melody" which means a song that is depressing.
