In English we have expressions/phrases that come from the combination of two or more words, conjunctions, etc. These expressions have their own metaphorical meanings, which could be used in specific contexts.
Could they also be used in non metaphorical context with their literal meanings or are they strictly tied up to those specific meanings and contexts? To give you a few examples:
Come down to the line (of a race) be closely fought right until the end. (Oxford dictionary)
Could it also mean that someone literally comes down to the line?
What's up? informal 1 what is going on? 2 what is the matter?: what's up with you? (Oxford dictionary)
Could this also mean what is up(up in the ceilings for example)?
