Instructions For Using This Guide (Important!)

Here are some common idioms that we use a lot of the time in America. The usages of these idioms can vary from region to region, or even from person to person. This is a general, non-inclusive compilation of the idioms and their uses.

How to use this guide

-It is recommended that when you need to find an idiom by its meaning, you should use the table of contents below to do so.

-The table of contents lists the groups of the idioms grouped by their meanings; with their group meanings listed in alphabetical order.

-If you want to find an idiom for its definition, you should use the index in the back of this book. The idioms in the index have been shortened.

-For the sake of convenience and order, the idioms, when alphabeticalized in the book under each group category, were alphabeticalized without the preceding To, For, etc. of the infinitive.

-You may also notice that some idioms may be listed several different groups. This is because some idioms may have more than 1 meaning. Don’t worry, if the idiom has more than one meaning, the other meanings are not counted as separate idioms. There are approximately 175 separate idioms in this book, even if the idiom itself may have more than one meaning. You may double-check in the numbered index if you wish.

-Please also read the When To Use Idioms chapter in this book, so you know how to use the idioms. After all, why learn something that you can’t use properly?

-Most of all, have fun and enjoy yourself using your newfound vocabulary of idioms.

Key

(To)=(At the beginning of the infinitive form of the idiom)=CAN be used concerning people.

(For something)=Relevant to something (a situation/thing/ action/ or etc.) but NOT to people.

( )=A noun that can be replaced with a relative noun (within the idiom itself)
