This chapter investigates the entrenchment of semi-schematic time constructions by a group of foreign language learners of Swedish. Results from a phrasal decision experiment with 30 German speaking learners of Swedish show that the learners of Swedish process these constructions significantly… read more
This paper discusses co-events denoted by verbs used in Swedish motion events. The motion events are analyzed as constructions in the sense of construction grammar, in which the motion component can be argued to be evoked by a syntactic construction rather than by the verb per se. The manner… read more

We present an experiment where natural language processing tools are used to automatically identify potential constructions in a corpus. The experiment was conducted as part of the ongoing efforts to develop a Swedish constructicon. Using an automatic method to suggest constructions has advantages… read more
