This chapter investigates how the non-linguistic knowledge stored in the conceptual level of FunGramKB interacts with the idiosyncratic linguistic knowledge stored in the other two levels, i.e. the lexical and the grammatical levels. It will be argued that the pivotal module of this knowledge base, the Ontology, and the conceptual information stored for the concepts building its taxonomy may be a good source to predict certain aspects of the different lexicalization patterns of the lexical units that lexicalize those concepts and the constructions in which they are subsumed. Consequently, the nature of this work is that of a cross-level analysis. At the same time, this work also analyzes how a verb-framed language like Spanish and a satellite-framed language like English draw different information from the same conceptual base.
