    UPDATE: The issue with post lag appears to be fixed, but the search system is temporarily down, as it was the culprit. It will be back up later!

EXERCISE Local Idioms

Discussion in 'BUILDING WORLDS' started by Diana, Oct 18, 2013.

  1. The following quote is taken from Levusti's wonderful Indepth Guide to Creating a Language! Idioms are a great way to add culture flavor to your locations and settings.

    For this exercise you will be creating some commonly used IDIOMS for your location.

    Some more examples:

    That man is a hammer in a tornado when he's angry. (Suggesting he does major damage!)

    I woke up today ready to spank the devil. (Someone woke up ready to start trouble!)
     
  2. I love this, I love this I love this I love this.

    To have blocks on ones head (to concentrate hard on a task)

    Fire-breather (One who speaks ill (scalding words) of others; a gossip)

    Mudmouth (A person given to foul language, a person whose language is considered coarse or dirty)

    Warm-handed (A caring or nurturing person)
