The basic level of the grammatical model in Functional Grammar, "the Fund", contains all the predicates and terms from which predications can be construed.
The basic level of the grammatical model in Functional Grammar, "the Fund", contains all the predicates and terms from which predications can be construed. Their combinatorial potential is specified by means of predicate frames, which indicate the quantitative and qualitative valencies of the predicate, i. e. the number and type of arguments that the predicate takes to form nuclear predications. The qualitative valencies are specified by the Semantic Functions of the arguments and the selectional restrictions imposed on them. The model distinguishes nuclear and satellite Semantic Functions, and the nuclear Semantic Functions are furthermore divided into classes of first, second and third argument Semantic Functions. The first argument Semantic Functions partially reflect the typology of States of Affairs. Each basic frame in the lexicon is associated with a number of meaning postulates, through which the predicate is semantically related to other predicates of the language. If these meaning postulates add up to a fiill specification of the meaning of the predicate they are called meaning definitions.
