Linguistic Field(s): Linguistic Theories

Call Deadline: 31-Jan-2011

Thematic Issue: Emergent Constructions - Construction Grammar and

Abstract: Given the growing interest of both Brazilian and foreign researchers
in the correlation between grammaticalization and construction grammar
studies, the proposal for this thematic volume aims at stimulating the debate
on this new research field by the proposition of some main questions which
must be addressed by any research in this area. Hence, we will looking
forward to receive paper from linguists who are interested in
grammaticalization of constructions and whose work answers all or some of
the following questions: (a) how the term 'construction' may be defined in
such an approach; (b) how the term 'grammaticalization' may be understood
in such an approach; (c) whether it is possible to consider grammaticalization
as a unidirectional linear process, organized in clines; and (d) how to bring
together the notion of the radial organization of grammar and the
grammaticalization paradigm.
