Nodes representing the dependent parts of idiomatic expressions are nodes with the
FPHR functor (see Section 8.2, "DPHR").
The t-lemma of a node with the
DPHR functor is the dependent part of an idiomatic expression, i.e. an expression that forms a lexical unit with the t-lemma of its mother node; the meaning of the whole is usually not compositional. In case the idiomatic expression has more dependent parts, these are conjoined into one large t-lemma with the
DPHR functor and they are all connected by the underscore mark; the order of the parts is identical to the surface word order (see Section 3.1, "Multi-word t-lemma").
Nodes of this type have a t-lemma, functor and other attributes. Nodes representing dependent parts of idiomatic expressions have no grammatemes.
Nodes of this type have no daughter nodes; for exceptions see Section 8.2, "Verbal idioms".
For the analysis of idiomatic expressions see Section 8, "Idioms (phrasemes)".
Similar to the nodes with the
DPHR functor are nodes that have the
CPHR functor (see Section 8.1, "CPHR"). Also these nodes form lexical units with their mother nodes; what is different is that most of the lexical information is carried by the node with the
CPHR functor, the t-lemma of its mother node is poor in its semantic content. The connection between a node with the
CPHR functor and its mother node is usually looser than in the case of nodes with the
DPHR functor; it is necessary that the morphological categories of the
CPHR node be encoded in its grammatemes. This means that nodes with the
CPHR functor belong to the class of complex nodes (i.e. nodes which are assigned grammatemes).
