Summary/Abstract: It is only in the new era of large electronic corpora that some low-frequency grammatical structures can be tested for their communicative as well as their systemic status. This is also the case of the complex predicate of the type ‘mít (to have) + abstract noun’ (e.g. mít zkušenost, to have experience) in the sense of ‘být zkušený’(to be experienced) in contemporary Czech. The expression v sobě (in oneself), if attached to the predicative syntagma of the type ‘mít (to have) + abstract noun’ can make this complex predicate acceptable and grammatical.
