Idiomatic expressions show complex pattern of conceptualization and need interaction between metaphor and metonymy to empower the tools to further develop conventional metaphoric and metonymic analysis into more complex patterns of interaction between the two. Metaphor and metonymy alone are not so powerful tools to justify extended domain of idioms in Koohmara Sorkhi. Idiomatic expression based on metaphor or metonymy alone are not so much found. There seems to be correlation between compositionality and the role of metaphor in conceptualization in idiomatic expressions. Compositional idioms are expounded metaphorically. Extension and reduction of conceptual domains (both source domain and target domain) are among most prominent processes in understanding idioms. Conventionality of meaning is found where semantic structure is very opaque because conceptual expansion of frame is not possible and necessary historic and cultural information is absent; hence meaning is conventionally associated with idiom. After all, there exist cases that availability of historic information makes idiom nonconventional.
