Both in German and Bulgarian the collocations with functional verbs are formed from verbs that have lost their meaning and have a predominantly grammatical and syntactic function; the second element in German is a substantive in the accusative or prepositional case, while in Bulgarian it is a substantive in the function of direct or indirect (prepositional) object. These collocations form a semantic and syntactic unity and are used as predicates. The substantive in the combination may be accompanied by attributes. In that case the semantic and syntactic unity is broken up. If the substantive is determined, it functions as an object while the predicate is represented by the functional verb.
