So…As it seems, there aren’t many idioms that start with the letter X. I have only found 3 for this week´s idiom.
Don’t forget to check out last week´s Idiom in W – Water Under the Bridge
What it means:
It refers to the exact spot. Imagine a map on which someone has indicated a location with a cross, well X marks the spot!
When to use it:
- When you point at something, whatever it is marks the spot.
- If you see any type of landmark or use something you see as a way to indicate direction you can say also use that expression. Ex: Can you see that church on the hill over there? Well, X marks the spot!
Other interesting idioms:
X-factor – If someone has the X-factor they have an outstanding ability, or an ability that is so impressive that you ignore they bad qualities. The talent show (also called X-factor) was named that way in relation to the candidates´unique abilities.
X-rated – If something is x-rated, it is not suitable for children. Usually associated with sexual content.
Like I said guys, there aren’t many idioms in X that exist. Next week, we will cover more idioms…promise!
Keep on learning!
