Abstract

Indonesian People say "Tak ada gading yang tak retak" (There is no ivory without a cracl9 to describe that no man i. perfect. In presenting the same idea, hardly do Indonesian people say "Tak ada temhok yang tak retak" (There is no wall without a crack). Although the latter is understan':lable but it is not acceptable or at least we are reluctant to accept it is a part of our expressions. The phenomenon is interesting. Traditionalists assume that the acceptable fixed expressions are conventional-the result of the convention of the producers. However, the answer is not satisfying. This paper discusses the underlying concepts that enable us to accept or reject certain expressions.
