Approximately fifty percent of the form and the meaning of transparent German particle verbs with "an" can be deduced from the minimal semantic argument structure of the verb and particle. The aim of this study is to create a format for understanding the remaining fifty percent using construction grammar analysis. The study employs frame semantics to explain the compositionality of the verb and the construction. The system is based on a flexible schema-instance relationship, where instances are the prototypes for schemata. Analysis of all patterns for a single particle demonstrates the broad scope of construction-based explanations.
