The importance of the research made by Tesnière (1959) for the concepts of dependency and valency cannot be underestimated. However, his Structural Syntax remains still uninvestigated in most part. In this paper, a formal grammar model that follows Tesnière’s intuitions and concepts as much as possible is proposed. This model is called constructive adpositional grammar. This paper explains the linguistic and formal reasons behind such a research plan.
