Concept composition in frames

focusing on genitive constructions

Wiebke Petersen, Tanja Osswald

pp. 243-266

In this paper, we show how frames can be employed in the analysis of genitive constructions. We model the main approaches in the discussion about genitive constructions, i.e. the argument-only approach, the modifier-only approach and the split approach. Of these three, the split approach is modeled most naturally in frames. Thus, if frames are considered a cognitively adequate representation of concepts, our analysis supports the split approach to the interpretation of genitive constructions.
