In middle school, many of your English lessons will be a review of what you have learned throughout grammar school. This is because language, any language, is a living and growing subject. Although the basic rules stay the same, new vocabulary words are always being added to it or older words find new meanings.
For example, the telephone now means a cell-phone or a mobile-phone, both words that did not exist 25 or so years ago. Besides being a living and growing subject people have a tendency to easily forget what they have previously learned so reviewing is what helps to keep our minds sharp and alert. Therefore, in this quiz we will be doing a little reviewing of idioms. Do you remember what an idiom is?
An idiom is a word or set of words that are used to express a figurative meaning rather than a literal meaning. For example, if you were to say, “He was caught with his pants down,” you would not mean that his pants were “literally” wrapped around his ankles. Instead, you would be saying that he was “caught by surprise” or “caught unexpectedly”.
Every language has its own set of idioms. The English language has many. Below are just ten examples of idioms that all have to do with clothing Can you guess the correct answer to show the true meaning of the underlined words?
