Abstract:

This collection of original articles focuses on the function, role, and
structure of linguistic and extralinguistic "context(s)" in relation to the
notion of "constructions" and in construction grammar. It thus takes up and
brings together two equally complex concepts of linguistics, which both
encompass structural as well as pragmatic and discourse-oriented aspects.
Although both notions - contexts as well as constructions - have been under
intense discussion in linguistics during the last decades with a wide span
of research interests, integrative studies of these aspects have been
largely missing.

The eight papers presented in this volume explore the possibilities and
risks of integrating context(s) into particular constructions and
construction grammar in general. Topics range from particular language and
construction-specific problems such as the "polysemy" of modal verbs in
relation to context-sensitive constructions, to general technical analyses
and proposals, including proposals for formalizing contextual features in
constructional representations.

The volume will be of interest to scholars and advanced undergraduates
interested in linguistic theory in general and in constructional, pragmatic
and discourse-analytic approaches in particular.
