Abstract:

This book introduces the notion of change construction and
systematically studies, within a Cognitive Grammar framework, the rich
inventory of its instantiations in English, from well-known structures
such as the so-called resultative construction to a variety of largely
ignored types such as asymmetric resultatives, sublexical change
constructions and mildly causal constructions.
