Adopting the perspective of construction grammar and related frameworks, this paper introduces a corpus-based method for investigating correlations between lexical items occurring in two different slots of a grammatical construction. On the basis of three case studies dealing with the into -causative, English possessive constructions, and the way-construction, we show that such correlations are determined by semantic coherence. We identify three kinds of coherence: one based on frame-semantic knowledge, one based on semantic prototypes, and one based on image schemas. We conclude by proposing a method that can potentially enhance the precision of our results and that allows us to identify ever-finer contrasts by adopting a multidimensional perspective towards co-occurrence patterns.
