Summary/Abstract: In the following paper we will try to bring to the foreground a new approach of analysing idioms belonging to the Romanian and Bulgarian phraseological fund. The article comprises an introduction to phraseology, in which the peculiarities of this particular group of fixed phrases named idioms will be discussed. Also, we will review the delimitation principles applied for separating them from other fixed constructions. The second part of the article will expound on the matter of c-selection with Romanian and Bulgarian idioms. Furthermore, we will show the evolution of this linguistic theory from the point of view of generative grammar and whether c-selection is relevant to idioms or not.
