Abstract

It has been traditionally believed that the main characteristic of set phrases is precisely their fixed nature. This paper gathers the results of a thorough study of verbal set phrases in Spanish, which was developed to observe this feature and for which a database of 15,300 expressions was used. It is worth noticing that, even if these phrases are fixed to different degrees, a considerable amount of them allow modifications in some of their components which do not alter the global meaning.
