Paul, I have no problem with this thread in the B-Greek Forum -- and, for that matter, I don't really have much of a moderator role here so much as I readily offer suggestions as they occur to me. My response concerned rather the very problem of describing the phrases as "literal" or speaking of a "basic meaning" for these phrases. And that, as Stephen suggested, may perhaps be a matter for discussion -- if we want to discuss it at all -- in a different subforum or topic.
οὔτοι ἀπ’ ἀρχῆς πάντα θεοὶ θνητοῖς ὑπέδειξαν,
ἀλλὰ χρόνῳ ζητέοντες ἐφευρίσκουσιν ἄμεινον. (Xenophanes, Fragment 16)

We've had snow this year in Jerusalem. While reading Dio Chrysostom (7.57) I ran into a nice idiom for when really cold:

ἀπεψυγμένος εἰμι.

brrrr. I'm freezing my ..., chilled to the bone.
