The usage of idioms enhance the beauty of a language and give richness to it. Idioms
usually comprise of a few words but these words have their own meanings different from
their literal meanings. Just as the meaning of put is different from when some words are
addedtoitasPutup,Putout,PutofforToputupforarainydayetc.Thesewordsare
to be used as they are and these cannot be changed at all. The grammatical use of these
words is fixed.For example He has his own axe to grind cannot be changed to ground
