    I guess it’s related with an idiom…to kill two birds with one stone 😁

      You’re right, Vita, that idioms usually contain strong collocation. For example we never say “Kill two birds with one stick,” or “Kill two cats with one stone.” Actually in this post I’m thinking more about combinations of 2 words -v,n; adj,n; etc. But thanks for the input!😊
