Pojem konstrukce v konstrukční gramatice
The Notion of Construct ion in Construct ion Grammar
Languages of publication
This paper gives an overview of the fundamental features that characterize Construction Grammar as a distinct approach to linguistic analysis. I discuss the theory’s conceptual underpinnings, introduce the basics of its representational apparatus, and briefly demonstrate the ways in which a constructional analysis is generally carried out, using both English and Czech data. The center of attention is on the notion ‘construction’ as a theoretical entity and the basic unit of analysis, which allows for both the Gestalt‑ like, holistic view of linguistic patterning and for keeping track of the internal properties of larger patterns. The constructional approach is shown to be well suited to accounting not just for fully schematic grammatical patterns but also for partial productivity.
