“Find out why you say what you say!” With a slogan like that it’s easy to be lured into this site. “What’s an idiom?” you ask? Well, an idiom is “a manner of speaking that is natural to native speakers of a language.”

What’s this site about? Well, you get a listing of commonly used idioms, click on the idiom you want to know more about and you get the history of it.

Example: Absence makes the Heart Grow fonder. Definition: The lack of something increases the desire for it. That’s what the phrase means. Its origin comes from Francis Davidson’s Poetical Rhapsody, 1602. Also in Thomas Haynes Bayly’s (1797-1839) Isle of Beauty: “Absence makes the heart grow fonder, Isle of Beauty, Fare thee well!”
