    I'm not one for starting trends but plenty keen for a bandwagon episode so I'll follow suit if others get the ball rolling. mmm idioms.

    id·i·om [id-ee-uhm]
    –noun
    1. an expression whose meaning is not predictable from the usual meanings of its constituent elements, as kick the bucket or hang one's head, or from the general grammatical rules of a language, as the table round for the round table, and that is not a constituent of a larger expression of like characteristics.
    2. a language, dialect, or style of speaking peculiar to a people.
    3. a construction or expression of one language whose parts correspond to elements in another language but whose total structure or meaning is not matched in the same way in the second language.
    4. the peculiar character or genius of a language.
    5. a distinct style or character, in music, art, etc.: the idiom of Bach.

    [Origin: 1565–75; < L idiōma < Gk idíōma peculiarity, specific property equiv. to idiō- (var. s. of idioûsthai to make one's own, appropriate, v. deriv. of idiós; see idio-) + -ma n. suffix of result]

    I prefer the way I explained it to my classes.
    Idioms - words that are sometimes used in English that don't mean what they should.
    Which I subsequently shorten down to "These don't make sense"

    They're language skills aren't the best so I have to keep it simple.

    This is is what I see when I'm on WF. I don't like all those avatars and signatures in forums, they distract me. And the older format is easier on the eyes for me!

    So thats why I dont have a sig or avatar. :p

    I never bothered changing mine from the one I had before. But it is nice that so many people have joined in, even The Reaper this time.
