The article explores the application of Construction Grammar Theory to the analysis of the main Slavic cognate languages. It demonstrates that constructional correlates are not identical in different Slavic languages: due to their noncompositional character, similar semantic constructions may differ in form, while some structurally identical constructions receive differing semantic interpretations in different languages. Examples of the most typical grammatical constructions, as characteristic of either all Slavic languages or their separate groups, are provided.
