American English idiom definition

An idiom is an expression whose meaning does not seem to follow logically from the combination of the meaning of its parts and the "rules of language."

Idioms are often classified as figures of speech.

Idioms are used extensively in American TV, movies, music, literature, and in conversations among native English speakers.
