Yes, that was precisely my point.� Calling something a "frozen expression" fails to advance the discussion of its truth.
� search for truth, hear truth,
learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth,
defend the truth till death.

In reference to the posting quoted below, I'd like to add the following:
That a clock is not working establishes nothing regarding the correctness or incorrectes of the time it's telling (twice a day, anyhow).
But that's belaboring the obvious. I don't see a helpful point that advances the discussion.

>That "from Dan to Beersheba" may be a "frozen phrase" establishes nothing regarding its correctness or incorrectness.� It might be thought that "from Maine to California" is a frozen phrase as well.� It nevertheless is true that the (continental) United States does extend from Maine in the North and East to California in the South and West.
