Abstract [en]

This paper presents a brief account of major lexicalization patterns of breaking and cutting events (jointly called disconnection) in Swedish, based on a general model (meaning matrix) of the disconnection situation. The place of Swedish in a general lexical typology of disconnection is sketched on the basis of data from a couple of non-European languages and corpus-based contrastive analysis of a number of genetically and/or areally closely related languages.
