Semantic extension" refers to the system positions which individual schemas occupy in the network. In the extensive investigation presented in the analysis I have identified g classification of subtypes of semantic extension: ations in the shape of schemas paradigmatic variation - variation in the portion of the schema which represents the case-marked entity syntagmatic variation - variation in the composition of the event chain (removal of participants, replacement of the verb with a copular construction) II.

Ist is mir me-DAT kall. cold He proposes that "we can conceive of the abstract force [here, coldness - LAJ] as exerting an effect on the dative [entity] which in turn causes an internal physical reaction within the [dative entity]" (Smith 1985: 396). Smith posits the schema found in Figure 5 to caption this type of dative. The internal reaction is symbolized by a squiggly arrow in the dative landmark. Smith has put forward a series of schemas as well as a prototype for the dative. He does not outline the network that they comprise, but the notion that the submeanings should be clustered in a network structure is implicit in cognitive semantics and in other models of description as well.

Arranging these meanings according to their relatedness produces a considerably more complex network than that implied by Mrazek, as shown in Figure 7. - -...... Predicate Object Space Time Integral Part Delimitation Cause Other Concrete Means PseudoComitative Figure 6. Mrazek's network ka (1980) also produced a list of meanings for the Russian instruclaimed that they were all related to each other because they shared siments in the semantic metalanguage of their definitions. Wierzbicka ke the system of relationships explicit either, but, like Mrazek, she gh clues for a network to be derived.
