Comment[edit]

Water freezes at 0 degrees celsius, not everything. --Sannab 21:13, 23 July 2006 (CEST)

OTOH, how many compounds does one say that they freeze when they reach the solid state? Yeah... probably a couple more than water, but certainly not all of them. What should the wordings be like:
Reaching the chemical solid state, used only for water and a couple of more substances? // habj 21:25, 23 July 2006 (CEST)
I believe it can be used for any substance in the opposite sense of "melt". eg. "Lead freezes at 600.61 K". We don't normally speak of lead freezing because lead normally exists as a solid on Earth. On a planet where temperatures are normally above 600K, you may speak of lead freezing. --OldakQuill 21:03, 25 July 2006 (CEST)

Dutch verb?[edit]

Can't really think of a Dutch verb. 'bevriezen' would be an 'Anglicisme', I think, and 'stokken' isn't exact either. Siebrand 13:50, 24 July 2006 (CEST)

Bevriezen is en goed Nederlands werkwoord .. stollen misschien ?? GerardM 21:08, 25 July 2006 (CEST)
Je antwoord geeft me aan dat ik te weinig specifiek mijn vraag heb gesteld. Ik zoek een Nederlands werkwoord met de volgende omschrijving: Zeer rustig of stil worden, gewoonlijk als resultaat van een verrassende, onhandige of verwarrende situatie. Siebrand 15:13, 26 July 2006 (CEST)
