Meeting Description: Workshop at ICCG-8: Constructionist Resources
Organizers: Ellen Dodge, Benjamin Lyngfelt, Kyoko Ohara, Miriam R. L. Petruck & Tiago Torrent

Construction Grammar has not only generated a wealth of linguistic research but also inspired the development of a number of linguistically motivated knowledge bases, which serve as resources for linguistics, language technology, and language pedagogy. The most well-known and long established of these databases is FrameNet, a large-scale and elaborate instantiation of Frame Semantics (e.g. Fillmore & Baker 2009). The first FrameNet was developed for English in Berkeley, and there are now FrameNets for quite a few languages. A complementary development are constructicons (e.g. Fillmore et al. 2012). In constructionist theory, a constructicon is the inventory of constructions that a language presumably consists of; as a practical application, a constructicon is a corresponding collection of construction descriptions. A third kind of resource is MetaNet (Dodge et al. 2013), a multilingual metaphor repository, based on the notion of conceptual metaphor, and organized according to the principles of Frame Semantics (Ruppenhofer et al. 2010) and Embodied Construction Grammar (Feldman et al. 2010). Both MetaNet and the constructicons build on FrameNet methodology and are intended to be compatible tools.
