Abstract:

Complex Lexical Items or CLIs are sequences such as comparable and proud
of. They are complex, because they consist of more than one part, but they
are also lexical items: they are likely to be stored as units in speakers'
linguistic repertoires. What people know about CLIs and how they use this
knowledge, is the topic of this book. Taking a usage-based view of language
acquisition, Maria Mos investigates children's knowledge of Dutch CLIs in a
number of online and offline experiments. Performance on these tasks is
contrasted with frequency data from corpora and with adult performance.
These studies investigate specific CLIs, but also seek to find out if evidence
can be found for knowledge of underlying patterns. The experimental data are
interpreted in the light of a model of Multiple Representations, which draws on
insights from the Construction Grammar framework. Because this book
combines corpus and experimental data on a topic at the crossroads between
lexicon, morphology and syntax, it is of interest to linguists coming from
diverse scientific angles. The analyses convincingly show that it is
necessary to assume that both concrete CLIs and (partially) abstract
representations are part of speakers' linguistic repertoires. They should not be
thought of as either pertaining to the lexicon or being part of syntax: they are
Complex Lexical Items.
