About Us

The way language is used idiomatically is super interesting.

This site is here to help people quickly find meanings to most common English idioms, and to discover some of the fun, colourful, evocative and even poetic ways people use them.

I’m James. I founded this site because idioms can bring a mixture of frustration and hilarity.

I’m mostly interested in the amusing ways idioms are used in English, but also other languages. Idioms can be really bizarre.

I’m British, so American idioms can be especially interesting.
