It is House’s belief (2001:248) that the broad notion of “context of situation” must be broken down into the more digestible register categories of field, tenor and mode. In effect, House assumes register analysis to be her framework for both textual analysis and the establishment of textual function. The notion of register presupposes a close relationship of text to context and refers to language used for a particular purpose in specific social settings. Hence, register is viewed as a “contextual category correlating groupings of linguistic features with recurrent situational features” (1997:105).

Do not put all your eggs in one basket). Then, Makkai exemplifies six types of lexemic idioms, namely phrasal verbs, tornures, irreversible binomials, phrasal compounds, incorporating verbs and pseudo-idioms, and nine types of sememic idioms among which are proverbs and formulaic greetings.

Hence, the attempt by experts or non-experts to define idiomaticity on the basis of a single criterion seems to be an elusive one. Nevertheless, the fact that linguists and non-linguists alike are becoming increasingly keen to contribute to this field is indicative of two major developments: the acknowledgment of the ubiquity of idioms in human language and the realization that an interdisciplinary approach to the study of idioms can give new insights into the field, extend these insights into other areas of linguistic study, and more importantly, shed some light on the hotly debated issues of idiom comprehension, processing and translation.
