Abstract
This research is an analysis of phraseological units which contain food in the English language and their equivalents in Croatian. The research consists of three major parts. The first part focuses on the theoretical background of phraseology and phraseological units. The second part consists of the explanation of methodology used in order to construct the corpus. The third part consists of an analysis of 28 phraseological units from the corpus which was constructed with the use of 14 dictionaries. The main part of the research is the analysis of the corpus, which focuses on identification of phraseological units in English and their equivalents in Croatian. The aim is to analyze the similarity of the two languages; that is, how many of the idioms are translatable (have their equivalents) in the other language. The three appendices represent an overview of data that was found in the dictionaries used the analysis. The first appendix is an overview of all the dictionaries along with the abbreviations used in the analysis. The second appendix shows the ratio of phraseological units based on the level of equivalence in the target and source language. Finally, the third appendix contains a list all the phraseological units used in this research: their version in the source language, their translation, and the type of equivalence
