## 6. Nodes representing the dependent parts of idiomatic expressions

`nodetype`

= `dphr`

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).
