- n. A grammatical construction in which a word’s inflexion is determined by the semantics of the word or words with which it associates, in contravention of what is required by grammar.
From modern Latin cōnstrūctiō ("[grammatical] construction") + ad ("toward, [according] to") + sēnsum (accusative singular of sēnsus, abstractly “sense”, “notion”, “signification”): "grammatical construction according to [the] sense". (Wiktionary)
