Abstract : Using the lexicon-grammar framework as developed by Maurice Gross (1994), we systematically analyzed 245 verbs that can be used as nominals with the light or support verb take. The data was divided into three main tables: purely intransitive verbs (e.g. bathe / take a bath), transitive (e.g. drink N1 / take a drink of N1), and intransitive with prepositional complements (e.g. look at N1 / take a look at N1). A final table demonstrates a set of converse take constructions as initially observed by Gaston Gross (1989), (e.g. N0 confess N1 to N2 ↔ N0 take confession ↔ N2 take the confession).
