    A major challenge in diachronic analysis concerns the issue of capturing, in a systematic way, the inherently dynamic nature of linguistic structure and the gradience of grammatical change. This paper is an attempt to address the challenge by exploring the viability of Construction Grammar as a tool of diachronic analysis. The constructional approach and the attendant theoretical claims are illustrated by one particular grammatical shift in Old Czech: the development of the ‘long’ form active present participle from a semantically transparent (participial) member of the verbal paradigm to an adjective-like modifier.
