	title        = {In search of subjective meaning in Swedish pseudocoordination},
	abstract     = {This study provides a discussion of the development of subjective meaning associated with the motion-verb pseudocoordination gå och V 'go/walk and V' and the posture-verb pseudocoordination sitta och V 'sit and V', using historical and present-day linguistic data. It is claimed that an interpretation in terms of item-based analogy and entrenchment of frequent meaning clusters is the most plausible analysis for the development of subjective (and pejorative) meaning associated with gå och V. The study of sitta och V is preliminary, but the results indicate that the subjective meaning of this construction is less entrenched than that of the gå och V construction and that the subjective overtone of subjectivity may be a result of the combination of the social/cultural meaning of the posture and certain intrinsically pejorative verbs, together with certain locatives.},
