I have no evidence that it is a fossilized phrase. It was a good guess in that it would explain the odd phrasing, and if it had been correct, you or others would have confirmed it.

So far, it remains unconfirmed, so likely, it is not a fossilized expression, and my erroneous assumption joins the huge mass of erroneous assumptions shot down by this list over the decades. The main difference between my error and many of the others is that I have no ego attached, and so I’m not coming back with some new argument to suggest that I was right all along. I was probably NOT right all along, and I have no problem confessing that.

… unless someone else comes up with evidence that it is a fossilized expression, or if they come up with a generalized trend for moving the marked object in front of the adverbial — something you have suggested and seems to be the winning explanation thus far. Assuming it remains unchallenged, it becomes the new consensus, until canon or future arguments win out.

After all, a Darwinian beak evolved for a specific food doesn’t go unchanged forever if the available food changes.
