This research program is oriented towards \b two main objectives\b0 : - to characterize certain \b semantic and syntactic irregularities\b0 of some predicators (namely, verbs governing prepositions) reading the prepositional behaviour of the relations or functions of the arguments implied by the predication (Agent, Cause, Instrument, Patient, Theme, etc.) -to organize the previous characterization as a \b data base\b0 \b (DB).\b0 This DB will support specialized works about the nature of the predicators, the kind of argumental functions and the propositions in charge of its expression, and the semantic functions expressed by preposition. It will be also of interest the caracterization of the lexico-conceptual structure of the predicators. It is expected that the results of this program will be usefull in tasks of \b lexical marking and labeling of irregularities\b0 (concerning functions and prepositions) in the developement of standard and electronic dictionaires, as well as in automatic translation related procedures.
