These absurd phrases are all ...

... titles of Harry Potter books.

How so?

These titles and the "absurd phrases" all have two principal words (The This of That or The Adjective Noun). The Harry Potter titles include the corresponding absurd word at the beginning or at the end as described in the preamble. So:

Letter's Number — Philosopher's Stone
Colour of Second — Chamber of Secrets
Confinement of Prohibition — Prisoner of Azkaban
Move of Anger — Goblet of Fire
Logical Operation of the Cancel — Order of the Phoenix
Red Liquid Common Era — Half-Blood Prince
Demise Foyer — Deathly Hallows
