Abstract

Parts of speech are not primitive notions, they derive from the constructions defining them. Constructions, in turn, can be classified according to a mainly semantic or semantic-syntactic approach. In this paper I follow the latter view: the “adjective” is defined as the most typical construction coding the quality modifier of the noun and a cross-linguistic typology of quality modifier constructions is presented.
