The last three decades have seen the emergence of Construction Grammar as a major research paradigm in linguistics. At the same time, very few researchers have taken a constructionist perspective on language contact phenomena. This volume brings together, for the first time, a broad range of original contributions providing insights into language contact phenomena from a constructionist perspective. Focusing primarily on Germanic languages, the papers in this volume demonstrate how the notion of construction can be fruitfully applied to investigate how a range of different language contact phenomena can be systematically analyzed from the perspectives of both form and meaning.

Table of Contents
“Language contact used to be a blind spot in Construction Grammar. This exciting volume demonstrates that it is now taking its rightful place in constructional research. The articles in this volume cover argument structure constructions, verbal inflections, split auxiliary systems, modal particles, word order, and motion verbs in languages such as Danish, Afrikaans, Swedish, Turkish, and Texas German. With its broad outlook, the volume not only pushes the boundaries of current constructional research; it also makes it relevant to researchers from other theoretical backgrounds.”
“A timely contribution from Construction Grammar to the current discussion on language contact and multilingualism. The case studies in this volume are united by a perspective on multilingualism as normalcy that brings language contact phenomena into the mainstream of linguistic analysis where they belong, thus setting a challenge one hopes will be taken up by other frameworks.”
