TitleDiscursive Constructions in the Russian-Swedish Dictionary Database: A Case Study of v tom-to i N
AbstractThe primary goal of the present study is to develop a new way for the description of discursive units in a Russian-Swedish dictionary database which is currently under construction. Discursive units are important elements of communication, but have not been fully described as yet. Using large text corpora for the empirical data, we are going to analyze the type of construction v tom-to i N / в том-то и N (that’s [just] the N) which is realized in a wide variety of tokens and demonstrate that some tokens of the construction can be so frequent that they can be considered to be cognitively entrenched units and are preserved in memory as separate units of the language, i.e. phrasemes. Such units should be described as separate items of the lexicon. The task of the investigation is to refine our notions of the structural properties of v tom-to i N /в том-то и N (that’s [just] the N) and identify additional distinctive features of the construction which should be included in its lexicographic description.
