Figures of speech (6)

Ross

I think it could be either:

idioms

tropes

'figures of speech' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for idioms that I've seen before include "Dialectic words" , "styles of speech" , "Dialects, vernaculars" , "Modes of expression peculiar to a language" , "Turns of phrase" .)

I've seen this clue in the LA Times and The Guardian.
