This volume contains selected papers from the 5th ICLC, Amsterdam 1997. The papers present cognitive analyses of a variety of constructions (phrasal verbs, prepositional phrases, transitivity, accusative versus dative objects, possessives, gerunds, passives, causatives, conditionals), in a variety of languages (English, German, Dutch, Polish, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Thai, Fijian). Besides analyses of ‘objective construal’, the volume reflects the increasing interest in subjectivity (grounding and speaker involvement). It also includes, lastly, contributions on the acquisition and agrammatic loss of constructions.

Table of Contents
“[...] and it offers a genuinely representative sample of cognitively spirited case studies on a wide range of constrcutions attested in different languages.”
“[...] the book as a whole is a nice illustration of how various cognitive mechanisms, especially construal, can be brought to bear on the analysis of patterns above word level.”
