Way up high

Post by pdh0224 » Thu Sep 30, 2004 9:47 pm

Dear teacher,

John McDaniel, music supervisor for "Brooklyn," said Ms. Espinosa's voice was unusually versatile. "She can growl notes way up high and she can float notes way up high," he said. "She sings with great soul."

Q : Is "way up high" an idiom?

All the best, :)

Yes, it is an idiomatic adverbial meaning 'at/to a very high place or point'.
