Sample text

Instead, Juan golpeó el coche ‘John hit the car’ can be paraphrased by el golpe de Juan al coche (lit. ‘Juan’s blow to the car’). As will be discussed later, similarly to the above mentioned authors, I also consider that all collocates contribute to the global meaning of collocations, but, contrary to them, I fall short of believing that this means that collocations are in fact free combinations. As Gaatone (2004: 244) points out, despite some correlations, there is a high degree of arbitrariness regarding the association of a noun with a given support verb, implying that it should be included in the dictionary.

Collocations are considered exclusively in terms of their production by the Speaker (rather than in terms of their interpretation by the Addressee). Consequently, the central question is how to describe a collocation so that its elements can be correctly selected and combined by a linguistic model. Collocations are considered exclusively with respect to their lexicographic treatment. As Mel’čuk (1995: 168) points out, “a syntax-geared linguistic theory is not an appropriate framework for dealing with idioms or, for that matter, with any type of phraseme”.

15 The situation is similar when the noun fecha ‘date’ stands as the second argument of the verb (se barajan varias fechas ‘various dates are being considered’), because the noun does not include the semantic component of ‘possibility’ that is provided by the verb barajar. Neither do nouns in group (4) form collocations with this verb. From the perspective of nombre, the speaker does not look for a verb that expresses ‘be considered as a possibility’. The idea of possibility is added by the verb without any redundancy of matching semantic components with the noun.
