This paper presents the semantics of preverb-verb combinations as semantic structures in a cognitive linguistics framework. The presentation sketches a semantic description of prototypical preverb-verb combinations as the default case, using the methodology of Langacker's theory of semantic structure and composite structure, and as an implementation of blending elaborated by Fauconnier. The basis of discussion is the functional cognitive principle claiming that the meanings of linguistic units and expressions, as well as their structures emerging from their meanings, are of a semantic, eventually conceptual and empirical, origin. Accordingly, the general semantic characterisation of preverb-verb combinations is followed by the discussion of some sentence semantic issues involving such combinations.
