empty space

Sum of parts. Preemptive strike: yes, each word empty and space have multiple senses, but this is the case for almost any given collocation, we don't need them unless the senses are counter-intuitive or unusual. - TheDaveRoss 00:52, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

This seems like an incredibly useful thing to translate, maybe it could be classed as a phrasebook entry. Kappa 00:55, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
keep: Empty space is not merely the sum of its parts. Consider outer space, inner space, storage space, blank space. Each of the first three uses the word space in the sense of a 3-D region; the final one typically refers to an empty 2-D region. --EncycloPetey 04:38, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
Keep the set phrase. I din't immediately think of as many senses as are listed. Davilla 12:42, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Keep - not all space is empty space! BD2412 T 23:45, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
