The primary concern of this study is to examine list constructions in spoken Hebrew, from two perspectives: an intentional perspective setting out the properties that a linguistic expression needs in order to be considered a list construction (the concept) and an extensional perspective specifying the objects that fall under this construction (typology). The study reviews the nature of list constructions in general, with the grammatical, lexical, semantic, and prosodic features of such constructions analyzed in relation to their discourse functions in everyday spoken Hebrew. The description of list constructions is based on examples from the CoSIH database of conversational interactions recorded during 2001 and 2002.
