Congeal vs. Freeze

  1. Oct 31, 2005 #1
    Is there a consensus on whether there is a difference in usage between "freeze" and "congeal". The general purpose dictionary definitions are not really helpful. I had always thought of congealing as a process of forming a non-crystalline solid, while freeze suggested a cystalline form, but it seems this is wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

    Is this a general question or in regards to some specific context? If the latter, please provide the context.
