This is the difference between an idiom and a phrase: A phrase is “a small group of words standing together as a conceptual unit”, while an idiom is “a group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words”. So, the difference is that an idiom as an established meaning not directly linked to the individual words. Any idiom is a phrase. As an example, “raining cats and dogs” is both an idiom and a phrase. “A herd of cats” is a phrase but not an idiom. plzzz mark me as brainliest. for god sake

Idioms are words which have a different meaning than the literal meaning of each word. For example:
1. Give it a shot - Try
2. Speak your mind - Say what you really feel
3. Slipped my mind - I forgot
