The notion ‘construction’ has become indispensable in present-day linguistics and in language studies in general. This volume extends the traditional domain of Construction Grammar (CxG) in several directions, all with a cognitive basis. Addressing a number of issues (such as coercion, discourse patterning, language change), the contributions show how CxG must be part and parcel of cognitively oriented studies of language, including language universals. The volume also gives informative accounts of how the notion ‘construction’ is developed in approaches that are conceptually close to, and relatively compatible with, CxG: Conceptual Semantics, Word Grammar, Cognitive Grammar, Embodied Construction Grammar, and Radical Construction Grammar.

Table of Contents
“One of the strengths of this volume is without a doubt, the excellent overview and comparisons of the different formalisms available for construction grammarians, both unification-based formalisms and others. It is inspiring to see so many academics raise themselves above their own theoretical models in order to bring to the fore the commonalities and joint aspects of various different, although seemingly related, frameworks, as is evident here.”
