 Abstract
Idiomatic expressions have been dealt with by linguists since the 19th century, when Russian scholars outlined the existence in a language of various special units, made up of two or more words, whose combination is fully integrated and has a specialized meaning. This paper is a short review of theories on idiomatic expressions, from the first researches in the field, of Saussure and Bally, and up to the present days. Our aim is to present those conceptions which have marked a change in the field, with a particular emphasis on the definition of phraseology and the various terms coined for idiomatic expressions. A specific insight is provided on phraseological research in English, Spanish, French and Romanian.

 Rezumat
Expresiile idiomatice au īnceput să fie tratate de către lingvişti īn secolul al XIX-lea, cānd cercetătorii ruşi au evidenţiat existenţa īn limbă a unor unităţi speciale, compuse din două sau mai multe cuvinte, a căror īmbinare este complet integrată şi are un sens specializat. Lucrarea de faţă prezintă pe scurt teoriile privind expresiile idiomatice, īncepānd cu primele cercetări īn domeniu, ale lui Saussure şi Bally şi pānă īn prezent. Scopul nostru este acela de a prezenta concepţiile care au marcat un punct de referinţă īn domeniu, accentuānd, īn special, definirea frazeologiei şi diverşii termeni consacraţi pentru expresiile idiomatice. Sunt detaliate cercetările īn domeniul frazeologiei īn ceea ce priveşte limbile engleză, spaniolă, franceză şi romānă.
