I have found that answers.com has a neat collection of idioms and proverbs in English. However, I'm looking for a public domain list of such material. I'd like to create an online English-Afrikaans list of idioms, but I can't use a list which is copyrighted or of which the copyright excludes the type of thing I'm doing. Got any ideas? Thanks!
The obvious thing would be to ask the copyright holder for permission to do whatever you want to do with his copyrighted material.
But of course this would have occurred to you already.
