We've added a new feature to the site - 'Phrases' feature. Phrases database is for storing idiomas, proverbs, slang, abbreviations on various languages and, of course, their meanings, translated (or not) to other languages. Some words or phrases used in song lyrics are difficult to understand, that’s why we added phrase databank to the site. Users can add new phrases, meanings (definitions) to existing phrases, request phrase for explanation, etc.

Since it's a new feature, it will evolve. Your comments, suggestions and bug reports are very welcome.

Yes, sounds good, and I'm with Sophia here - how does it work?

It would be nice if it could draw from translations, or more specifically - footnotes, where idioms are usually (preferably) explained. Here's an example I did a while back http://lyricstranslate.com/l%C3%B8kken-noose.html where I've explained an idiom in the fn. So, it could be nice it this new feature could somehow draw from there to its database too.

Try to hover your mouse over the text of your explanation and you will see grey links "edit" and "delete" at the top right corner of your explanation.

You can add a new phrase from the main menu or from the block "Phrases" in the right column.

As well the block "Phrases" is designed for quick search of phrases.

Be careful when using the block: you may find yourself on another page, and all changes to the current page could be lost.
