Book Information


Title: Kookkurrenz, Kontrast, Profil [Cooccurrence, Contrast, and Combinatorial Profiles]
Subtitle: Korpusinduzierte Studien zur lexikalisch-syntaktischen Kombinatorik französischer Substantive (mit ergänzenden Betrachtungen zum Deutschen)
Written By: Sascha Diwersy
Series Title: De Gruyter Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 373

The book develops a corpus-induced approach to lexical semantics. Within the scope of an examination of the core claims of previous collocation studies, the author embeds the notion of the “combinatory profile” in a methodological and analytical framework. He then provides case studies of lexical-syntactical combinatorics for substantives that indicate action disposition in French and German.
