1. They are very happy.
2. They are on cloud nine.
3. They are walking on air.
------------------------------
Are they all the same in meaning? What is the meaning of 'air' in Sentence 3?

  1. Steve

    I think google is very helpful for these idioms. You can get various definitions and explanations.

  2. Writeacher

    Yes, all mean the same thing. You could also say, "They are ecstatic."

    Walking on air is figurative language for being so happy, it's as if the person's feet aren't even touching the ground. It's just about the same as "on cloud nine."

    Remember, these are expressions and idioms that have developed over a long period of time. They are not always able to be defined literally!
