Abstract:

Now Available in Paperback!

This volume gives an easily accessible, yet comprehensive, sophisticated,
and example-rich introduction to Construction Grammar as it has been
developed from the early 1980's by Charles J. Fillmore and his associates.
It also provides a succinct account of the historical and intellectual
background of the model and shows how Construction Grammar can easily be
applied to typologically very different languages and to a variety of
language-specific phenomena. All of the contributors to the volume came out
of the Fillmorean school at UC-Berkeley and have worked consistently on
applying and further developing the model in various domains of linguistic
analysis.

"The book as a whole is an interesting introduction to Construction Grammar
as a formal theory of language, and shows that the framework is
sufficiently flexible and accurate to account for linguistic facts across
languages. The volume, and in particular Chapter 2, will thus be an
extremely useful reference for anyone interested in constructional approaches."
-Valeria Quochi, Linguistics Department, University of Pisa, Italy, on
Linguist List, Vol. 16.2277 (2005)

"[...] a valuable source for anyone interested in current research in
Construction Grammar. The structure of the book seems unusual in combining
a textbook introduction with research articles. This combination however
turns out to be very useful, as it allows the reader to familiarize with
the theoretical framework before seeing it applied to a number of different
phenomena."
-Martin Hilpert, Rice University, in Studies in Language, Vol. 31:2 (2007)
