Idioms represent a fascinating linguistic phenomenon that has captured the attention of many linguists for decades. This book provides a corpus-based study of idioms in Modern Standard Arabic. Examining the data with regard to their semantic, discursive, lexical and grammatical properties, the author sheds light on their intricate nature, establishes the major patterns of their linguistic behaviour, and provides explanations for these patterns.
