    "glued / rooted / frozen" to the spot

    glued to the spot - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
    glued/rooted to the spot
    if you are glued to the spot, you cannot move, usually because you are very shocked or frightened
    I stood there rooted to the spot as he came nearer and nearer.


    Do you say "frozen to the spot" to mean "rooted to the spot" or "glued to the spot"?
