Abstract

In order to optimize corpus searches for valency lexicon production, we analyse the relative frequencies of different combinations of valency complementations of Czech deverbal nouns in the Prague Dependency Treebank, considering differences between productively and non-productively derived nouns and their semantic class. We also classify combinations of forms of participants according to their frequency.
