A Conceptual Dictionary of Catalan Idioms1 1 The ideas presented here are the result of long-term discussions with several colleagues who have been working on the development of this project: M. Brunés, D. Casals, M. Ferrer, M. Guillén, D. Hidalgo, I. Vallès, and X. Villalba. I wish to thank them all for their personal involvement. My gratitude, also to C. Alonso, I. Bosque, T. Cabré, J. Mascaró, J. Massot, J. Mateu, G. Rigau, and M.T. Ynglès. Three anonymous reviewers of the IJL have provided me with provocative questions and useful suggestions, for which I am sincerely grateful. Financial support during the development of this paper was obtained from the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science (BFF2003-08364-C02-02) and the Catalan Direcció General de Recerca (2001SGR-00150). The DSFF project was carried out in two distinct phases. The build-up of the data base, 1997–2002, benefited from various grants: Centre de Referència en Enginyeria Lingüística and Direcció General de Recerca (2001ACES00050) of the Generalitat de Catalunya, Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnología (PB96-1199-C04-02, BFF2000-0403-C02-01, BFF2001-4353-E), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, and Caixa de Catalunya. The edition of the dictionary, in 2003, benefited from an agreement between the following institutions: Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Universitat de València, Publicacions de l’Abadia de Montserrat, Departament de Presidència de la Generalitat de Catalunya and Direcció General de Política Lingüística del Govern de les Illes Balears.
