Abstract [en]

By means of a lexico-semantic analysis, the aim of this paper is to provide a clearer picture of how the English verb graspis used in actual language production. The material for the analysis has been gathered from the 100 million word British National Corpus. The results of the study provide new and valuable information about the character and use of the verb and thereby supplement the information about graspalready existing.
