Description The term zeugma denotes the linguistic phenomenon that means yoking together expressions with different argument structure, or with semantically incompatible meanings. For that reason, its detection is in many cases relatively difficult subject, mainly because three perspectives of language have to be considered: syntax, semantics and pragmatics.The presented paper describes a possible approach to the detection of this kind of structure. The output of the research will be part of the new online proofreader for Czech.
