Can anyone think of examples of words which are associated, such as elbow grease or coat rack?
This is for language research. We need a list of noun pairs which have meaning by themselves but mean something else together. Other examples could be traffic light, diamond ring, tree house. It seems easy but it's kinda tricky.
