Summary/Abstract: The problems of classification of predicatives and related terminology remain unresolved. Which constructions should be included in this category and how to label their types? And how to call these elements that do not fall under the umbrella term of the predicative? This book classifies and provides terminology for predicative constructions on the basis of an analysis of selected grammars of German. To obtain a better insight into the problem area, some relevant aspects of the Polish language are also taken into consideration. The analysis of selected grammars focuses on words and word-groups which function as predicatives. The findings present a complex picture of various approaches to predicative expressions. This multiplicity of viewpoints results from different criteria of classification adopted in the literature and from the complexity of the problem itself.
