Constructs

 

in linguistics, concepts about generally unobservable linguistic objects, the opposite of elementary concepts —concepts about observable objects. An example of a construct is the phoneme; an example of an elementary concept is a class of speech sounds. Constructs are used as elements in forming an abstract theoretical system (in contrast to elementary concepts.)
