comment Why are 成语 (idioms) four characters long? Are there 成语 with more or less than four characters?
Alenanno,in modern Chinese ,most words consist of two characters, but in classic Chinese,usually,one character is one word. just a reminder, I'm not picking on you.

You are right that there are some three-character idioms, and I add two, but I don't think the words in your link are good examples of idioms. I believe idioms come from classic books and the words in that link look like oral expressions, and I would call them “谚语,俚语”, instead of “成语".

comment How to translate/understand “还不” in “还不是因为爱”
@StarCub I think you mean "not equal to" by "!=", so what's the problem? I said “还真不" was the negative form of “还不"
