Idioms
#61: October 11, 2020, 11:55:31 PM
thought of this with re: templates vs. clone exercise in own thread:

"broke the mold when they made x"

idioms if I recall with respect to principles and parameters approach to language, is a phrases unique for each language, partly because they require a precise phrasing for the tacit meaning to be conveyed or else it comes across as an literal expression of an occurance (hence e.g the trope about english as a second language speakers  making comedic errors in phrasing in attempts to express idiomatically).

in chinese, their idioms require parts of speech not featured in  english:

shi shi er shi  (can't recall the meaning, but the two at the front are identical and verbs when side by side it indicates a diminutive of sorts)

'Shi' is also 'four' in Chinese. The planetary symbol associated with Jupiter also resembles a four and a two. Maybe it's a forty two or twenty four??
