Idiomatic expressions are commonly used by the native speakers to express their idea. Aside from that, this linguistic term also brings the philosophical value of the speakers. The aims of this research are to investigate the philosophical value of the word red in English idioms and to examine the use of these idioms by using the corpus. A record maintenance data collecting technique is used to collect the data. The data were taken from American English Idioms Dictionary and English Corpus. The referential approach is used to analyze the data. The results show that the red color in English idioms has positive and negative contextual meaning. Moreover, during the use of these idioms from time to time, transformation and variation are found in the use of these terms in daily conversation.
