      Idiom Definition. An idiom is a phrase or an expression that has a figurative, or sometimes literal, meaning. An idiom’s figurative meaning is different from the literal meaning. Idioms occur in all languages on every continent throughout the world. Figurative language is when a writer describes something by comparing it with something else. It is writing that goes from the actual meaning of words at face value to get a special meaning. The figurative meaning is different from the literal meaning. For example, consider the sentence, "When she heard the news, she was over the moon and jumped for joy".
