American and Canadian Idioms

  1. 1. Idiomatic Expressions (American and Canadian) Yenna Monica D. P.
  2. 2. IDIOMATIC EXPRESSIONS • Idioms are expressions that aren't meant to be taken literally.
  3. 3. Some American IDIOMS
  4. 4. Some Canadian Idioms • Canadians have their own way of speaking. And because English is a mongrel language with Germanic, Latin and Greek roots, it is prone to idiomatic expressions. The Canadian version of any expression may have retained a lot of British slang, but like the dream of multiculturalism, they welcome integration.
