Abstract

The paper aims to show that light verb constructions (LVC) are formed not only with predicative nouns, but also frequently with result nouns and some concrete nouns. We propose a quantitative verification of the hypothesis that in Czech, result nouns are at least as frequent in LVC as event nominalisations (“verbální substantiva”). The paper tries to explain reasons of this phenomenon and it shows the mechanism that allows concrete nouns to appear in LVC, not only in Czech, but also in French.
