A plea for explanation
Palavras-chave:Explations, Syntax, Semantics, Tough constructions
The paper responds to Duffley's hypothesis that syntactic phenomena are explicable by the ways in which constructions are used. A model of explanation will be offered, and on this basis 'tough' constructions and the general counterfunctionality of syntax will be discussed.
