Summary/Abstract: The paper analyses the Hungarian language cultivators’ arguments against the use (even existence!) of light verb constructions, shedding light on the underlying language ideologies such as language purism, redundantism, systemism, brevism, moralism, extrudism, simplicism, percerptionism, aformalism, naturism, verbism, expressivism, homogenism, plebeianism, autonomism, Platonism. In the concluding section of the paper, the author reframes the cultivators’ arguments into a linguistic adequacy framework, thus demonstrating their potential usefulness.
