TitleA statistical approach to Czech prepositional collocations
AbstractThe paper deals with prepositional collocations in Czech which consist of a preposition and an autosemantic word, esp. abstract noun, either of paradigmatic type, e. g. v rámci (within the framework of), or nonparadigmatic type - vzhiedem k (with respect to). After the description of their rhythmical and lexical structure, a statistical analysis of five chosen groups follows. The statistical values are frequency of the abstract noun, frequency of the prepositional collocation, ratio between these two frequencies and MI-score. It appears that the high statistical data i. e. MI-score and the ratio between the collocation freqency and the lemma frequency are fundamental for searching of the basic member of each group as well as of other fully lexicalized members. These collocations should be elaborated in specific lemmas.
